Advertising Age: Now That Tim Armstrong Is Leaving Oath, Where Will He Land Next?. “Tim Armstrong, CEO of Verizon’s Oath, is in talks to leave the company as early as October, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal. Oath includes AOL and Yahoo, two former internet stalwarts that Verizon recently purchased for a combined $9 billion. Armstrong was initially tasked with using parts from each company to create an advertising platform that would rival the so-called duopoly of Google and Facebook.” That was his mandate? If I were him I’d head over to King Augeas and ask if he had any stables that need spiffying up. That task would be a walk in the park in comparison.
