mambo.



Young, who headed up AOL’s West Coast corporate communications during

its mega-merger with Netscape, has jumped to Mambo.com, a start-up

offering online event planning.



In her new position as the site’s senior director of communications,

Young will oversee all PR strategy and internal communications.

Mambo.com went live in October.



’AOL was a fabulous company, but I really missed the bare bones aspect

of working for a start-up,’ said Young. Prior to her AOL tenure, she

founded and headed up Kidsoft, which distributes educational software

for children.



Young began her career in the political realm, working for the State

Department and on George Bush’s 1992 presidential campaign.
