SourceMedia, a B2B publisher for professionals in the finance, technology and healthcare industries, has announced that Gemma Postlethwaite will succeed Doug Manoni as CEO of the media company.
Manoni previously stated that he would step down in early 2018 following eight years as CEO. Postlethwaite will take over the post on April 9.
“Gemma’s background as a transformative leader in financial information services is a great fit for our company,” stated Manoni. He cited her "strong product development and operational experience in media and information services" to aid the company's future growth and success.
Postlethwaite was previously CEO of Pira Energy Group, which was acquired by S&P Global in 2016. She has also held senior executive roles at Altegrity, a group of risk solution companies, and business data and marketing solutions company Infogroup, as well as at Thomson Reuters.
Postlethwaite joins SourceMedia at a time when it is ramping up its digital business profile.
Last month, the company relaunched its digital publishing platform to optimize deeper engagement between its audiences and clients. The company is focused on cross-platform user experience, native advertising integration and an improved mobile user experience.
It also recently released a new suite of products for marketers to better connect brands with their target audiences through branded content and native advertising.
SourceMedia’s titles include American Banker, The Bond Buyer, Financial Planning and Mergers & Acquisitions, among others.
