Robb Report continued its transformation this week, filling out its executive team seven months after the luxury title was sold to a private equity group.
A new chief digital revenue officer, John Ruvolo, senior vice president of marketing, Paige McCrensky, and senior vice president of digital partnerships, Joseph Gallagher, coupled with the March appointment of Stephen Colvin, COO and president of the group’s digital division, signal Robb Report’s focus on expanding its digital presence.
“John, Paige and Joe are proven leaders who bring extensive knowledge, industry influence and strategic insight to our team” Colvin says in a statement. “These hires mark a critical step in the digital growth of the Robb Report brand.”
Also notable, Ruvolo and McCrensky both come to Robb Report from Martini Media, a week after the brand was sold to Evolve Media.
Here’s the rest of this week’s people on the move:
Cycling publication VeloNews has named John Bradley editor-in-chief. Bradley had been a senior editor for Outside and Wired magazines.
