Former iStockPhoto Co-Founder Tapped to Head Up Rival Microstock Agency's Operations in US
New York, NY, May 06, 2009. Today, Fotolia, one of the world's leading sources for high quality microstock imagery and video, announced the expansion of its executive team with the hire of Patrick Lor, co-founder of rival firm iStockPhoto, as the company's new President for North America.
The hire will bring Lor out of retirement, after his company sold to Getty Images in 2006. "Fotolia has continued to be an innovative pioneer in the microstock space. They continue to democratize the microstock industry, keeping stock imagery affordable for small business owners, non-profit organizations, and other groups that would otherwise not be able to afford the costs of licensing imagery associated with other companies," says Lor, of his decision to join the team.
