After a hiatus I’m coming up for air to once again post on this blog. Happy to say I’ve begun an exciting new role as Vice President of Audience Development and Research at Penton Media. I’ll be building the audience for Penton’s impressive array of 100+ business magazines, websites, data products, live events and more. In addition, I’ll be helping create new revenue opportunities driven by audience research and data. Here’s the press release from our CEO, Sharon Rowlands. Thanks everyone for your well wishes.
