Vunet.com reports that Ask.com has hired a former Google executive, Cesar Mascaraque, as the company's new European managing director.

In a statement, Mascaraque said that he's very excited to join as Ask is the fastest growing search engine.

Forum members, obviously, have a problem with that perception, as Hitwise shows that Ask.com shares haven't grown significantly over the past few months. Perhaps, though, things are about t change.

Mascaraque was also quoted as saying "I have watched the brand set itself apart from competitors by pioneering new products and offering innovative ways of bringing search to users."

And a forum member agrees with that sentiment:

Ask does have an interesting media blitz going on and have been for the past 12 months or so. Between the Unibomber Billboards and the TV Commercials, the Ask Brand is getting out there.
