Walt Doyle is the board director of Auction Holdings Inc.

Walt sets the vision and strategy for the PayPal Media Network. As an outwardly facing CEO and strategist, Walt led the WHERE business for five years, which resulted in the April 2011 acquisition by PayPal. During this time, Walt built a world-class team of like-minded entrepreneurs and leaders around him.

Walt’s passion for emerging technology has kept him on the leading edge of consumer media and technology for over 15 years. Prior to joining WHERE in 2005, Walt was a GM of MapQuest (AOL).

His career began in Hong Kong with Dow Jones (DJ), then spanned executive level appointments with GameSpot (CNET), Net2Phone (IDT), and DialPad (YHOO). Walt’s ability to identify emerging technology trends, create corporate strategy, and build winning teams puts him squarely at the helm of the PayPal Media Network.

Walt was named a finalist in the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2010 program and was also named a Massachusetts High Tech All Star. Walt serves on the leadership board of the Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council.

Walt left San Francisco for his native home of Boston in 2005 where he and his family are outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy fishing, biking, hockey, and travel.

He is a graduate of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.
