Former Dow Jones Digital Boss Gordon McLeod Lands at Krux

Gordon McLeod, the former head of Dow Jones’s digital publications, has a new job at an ad tech start-up. He’s now president at Krux, a two-year-old “data management platform” that helps publishers control “cookie” data that tracks Web surfers’ movements. Last fall, Krux raised $11 million in a round led by Accel and IDG. McLeod left News Corp.’s Dow Jones, where he oversaw business operations for multiple sites, including this one, in 2010.
