Bloomberg LP has announced the appointment of Justin B Smith as Chief Executive Officer of Bloomberg Media Group, which comprises Bloomberg’s television, radio, magazine, conferences and digital businesses globally. Smith will join Bloomberg LP on September 16 and will be reporting to CEO and President Daniel L Doctoroff. Andrew Lack, who has served as CEO of Bloomberg Media Group since 2008, will become Chairman of Bloomberg Media Group.
Smith served as President of Atlantic Media from 2010-13 and President of Atlantic Consumer Media division from 2007-10. While at Atlantic Media, he spearheaded The Atlantic’s transformation from a largely print-centric magazine to a digitally-led multi-platform franchise.
“Throughout Bloomberg’s history, we’ve been defined by our ability to disrupt markets, our willingness to invest when others don’t, and our constant focus on innovation,” said Doctoroff. “Justin Smith has an exceptional track record in each of these areas. His deep understanding of the media and vision for its future makes him an ideal fit at Bloomberg as we continue to transform and expand our media businesses worldwide.”
Doctoroff further said, “Andy has provided great leadership and vision for our Media Group for nearly five years as we’ve enhanced the quality of our media properties and expanded internationally.
“As we build our business around the world, we deeply value leaders who understand the global long-term trends that will change the way people consume and make use of information,” said Peter T Grauer, Chairman, Bloomberg. “Justin’s international experience, coupled with his leadership in growing media businesses across new and old platforms, shows that he is the ideal candidate to lead our Media Group.”
Prior to joining Atlantic Media in 2007, Smith had served as President and Publisher of The Week magazine, where he launched the US edition in 2001. He joined The Week from The Economist Group, where he was Head of Corporate Strategy in London, Hong Kong and in New York.
The Bloomberg Media Group is the company’s unified media group comprising the company’s television, print, radio, syndication, mobile, events and digital media properties, providing integrated solutions for advertisers and a seamless experience for consumers of business news.
