Thornton most recently was vice president/finance for Clear Channel Chicago. In her new capacity, she will be responsible for managing the interactive group’s financial and operational planning activities.

“I couldn’t be more pleased to join a team where reinvention is not empty rhetoric, but rather an active and deliberate pursuit measured by results,” Thorton said in a statement.
