Four More Execs Depart SourceMedia in Latest Restructuring

The shakeup continues at SourceMedia.

The lone holdover on a five-person C-suite that has now entirely changed since Gemma Postlethwaite succeeded Doug Manoni as CEO in early 2018, Longobardi first ascended to chief content officer in 2008 after spending nine years as editor-in-chief of flagship title The American Banker—a tenure that began before SourceMedia's formation in a spin-off from Thomson Financial in 2004. On the business side, chief data officer Christian Ward—who arrived last summer from SaaS firm Yext—is now back at Yext in a similar role after less than a year with SourceMedia. And SVP Dennis Strong—the head of media sales, to whom all brand and group publishers had been reporting since last year—left in July after more than eight years with SourceMedia and is now in an executive role at litigation services provider U.S. Legal Support Inc. Strong's departure came a little over a month after SourceMedia announced the hiring of Dave Colford, formerly president of media at Hanley Wood, as chief revenue officer, a newly created role focused on integrated sales across the company's information, media and events divisions. Longobardi's dismissal is the latest in a series of content-side exits in recent months across SourceMedia's portfolio of 19 media brands, most of which... Continue reading at 'Folio Magazine'
