Every two weeks, Kelly Benish — who knows practically everyone in hyperlocal — covers some of the latest job changes taking place in this dynamic industry. (Plus, scroll down for jobs on offer now.)

Tim Miller – Yext
Formerly Placeable‘s enterprise sales director for the Western U.S., Tim A. Miller decamped for Yext last month to become the company’s new VP of enterprise sales. Miller jumped over to the well-funded business listing management platform to help grow their multi-location side of the business.

Gene Daly – Balihoo
Gene Daly recently checked out of call tracking monolith Marchex, where he had been their Director of business development, hopping over to Balihoo as director of enterprise sales. With his extensive experience working at yellowpage CMR’s like Donnelly and Ketchum in the past, he is sure to make a large dent in increasing Balihoo’s multi-location partnerships.

Kevin Keith – YP
Kevin Keith is a true pioneer in the space, he spent THIRTY YEARS (three entire decades) at Dex growing to a director of national marketing role. I know some folks that can’t commit to a role for more than three months, so Keith is definitely not a commitment-phobe. He even stayed at Dex after the Supermedia acquisition and the evolution of “Super-Dex” came to light. What a trooper. Well, recently picked up this devoted executive and named him their senior manager of product.

Ted & Suzy Teele – SnapRetail
The CEO and COO of SnapRetail just left the SaaS start-up after announcing (around Halloween) they were going to cut jobs to stay true to their strategic planning for 2015. In the meantime, Tara Ronel will serve as the board-appointed Interim CEO. I was fortunate enough to meet Ted Teele at the Street Fight Summit in NYC two years ago and I remember admiring his drive when he spoke about his beloved company.  Under their leadership, Ted and Suzy Teele grew the the company to become a leading online digital marketing solution for over 3,000 retailers across the United States.

Maria Blondeaux – Niche Media
Niche Media recently named Maria Blondeaux its chief operating officer. In addition to working for the lifestyle magazine goliath, Blondeaux will also continue in her VP of Manufacturing role at Greenspun Media Group. Greenspun Media Group is also a mass group of over 30 magazine and newspaper publications headquartered in Las Vegas. Talk about multi-tasking!
