Zarley, an angel investor in ValueClick, had served as ValueClick’s chairman and CEO from 1999 to 2007. He then assumed the full-time position as executive chairman to focus on the company’s European operations and corporate development program.

"Tom has been a valued partner over the last nine years and all of us at ValueClick wish him and his family the best in his retirement,” says Zarley. “I am excited to return to the role of ValueClick`s CEO and look forward to working hard with the team to drive the business."

Martin Hart, a member of the ValueClick board of directors since 1999, will succeed Zarley as executive chairman.
