Daryl is Vice President of AOL's Global Talent Acquisition team.  In his role Daryl leads executive recruiting, global staffing strategy, executive succession planning, new hire onboarding and integration, and operations for AOL's contingent workforce.

Now positioned for growth, these changes directly align with AOL’s mission to become the first branded media and technology company.
