As an experienced communications executive and organizational leader, I have a distinguished background spearheading innovative journalism that builds audience and revenues, as well as business experience in marketing, sales, industry technology, product development and executive-level communications. As a senior editorial executive, I have represented companies at industry conventions and public events, communicated significant product or service developments to customers and participated in employee contract negotiations.
My management portfolio includes overseeing journalism that has generated new revenues, fostered community engagement and resulted in federal and state legislation, congressional hearings and regulatory reviews based on investigative and enterprise reporting conducted in some of the nation's most competitive media markets, including Long Island’s Newsday, as well as San Francisco, Washington, DC, Denver and Indianapolis.
I have worked on successful marketing & sales campaigns, as well as customer outreach and informational materials for regional digital and print organizations, as well The Associated Press, the world's largest news organization.
In recent years I've worked with customers to deploy Associated Press Digital News Experience content - ready-to-publish Web packages that provide complementary coverage and drive significant revenue to member sites - with customers experiencing some of the highest revenue gains in the country following implementation.
While with AP, I was part of a small national leadership team developing partnerships with nonprofit watchdog news organizations to distribute their content via AP delivery platforms.
