RSS newsreader company Newsgator, one of the biggest in the sector (and who’s been doing some good exclusive deals with content providers of late), has appointed a new heavy-hitter CEO: former Ziff Davis International president J.B. Holston has joined as its new CEO and president.

Holston has run a wide range of technology and media enterprises in the last 20 years. He was instrumental in moving NBC into the cable industry and internationally in the late 1980s. As president of Ziff Davis International, Holston managed Ziff Davis’ operations across more than 100 countries, and launched Yahoo Europe.

Newsgator founder Greg Reinacker, will now serve as CTO.
