With Forman joining the team, uLocate will have proven leaders in both consumer products and media at the helm of its strategy and thus be uniquely positioned to capitalize on the growing market opportunities in location-based services.

Before joining EarthLink, Forman served as head of media and information at Yahoo! Inc., responsible for such category-leading businesses as Yahoo! News, Finance and Sports. Prior to Yahoo!, Forman was CEO and co-founder of Success Television and MyPrimeTime Inc., a television production and venture-backed Internet company, and serves as non-executive chairman today.

He also was a member of the management team that took early search-engine Infoseek public. Forman has a master’s degree in law from Yale and an undergraduate degree from Princeton.
