CQ ROLL CALL ANNOUNCES KEITH WHITE AS EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT & MANAGING DIRECTOR FOR CQ/CAPITOL ADVANTAGE

Washington, D.C.--Andrew Rashbass, CEO of the Economist Group, today announced that Keith White would be promoted to be Executive Vice President & Managing Director for CQ/Capitol Advantage. 
 
In his statement to CQ Roll Call employees, Rashbass praised White for his leadership: "Keith's expertise in information services and his knowledge of our market make him uniquely qualified for the role. Keith has shown clarity, decisiveness and leadership since we reorganized CQ Roll Call earlier this year and I am confident he is the right person to lead the business."

The full statement is below:  
 
Dear all:
 
I am pleased to announce that I am promoting Keith White to be Executive Vice President & Managing Director for CQ/Capitol Advantage.  Keith's expertise in information services and his knowledge of our market make him uniquely qualified for the role. Keith has shown clarity, decisiveness and leadership since we reorganized CQ Roll Call earlier this year and I am confident he is the right person to lead the business.
 
Keith will continue to report directly to me with full responsibility for CQ/Capitol Advantage. This includes the editorial staff and all of the shared services across CQ Roll Call.  Therefore Mike Mills will now report directly to Keith. 
 
This appointment and the focus that comes with the new organizational structure are two of a number of recent milestones and highlights:
 

  • Record sales for CQ since the start of the year
  • Unprecedented hiring activity (thirty five positions!)
  • Moving the whole company to a great new building near Capitol Hill
  • Exciting new products, for example, the beta launch of the CQ Executive Briefing, where CQ experts guide executives throughout       the day on the news, analysis and documents that matter to them, and the CQ Roll Call Daily Briefing, which already has more than 35,000 subscribers
  • Close cooperation between Roll Call and the commercial operations of The Economist, which is already allowing us to offer advertising clients new ways to achieve their marketing goals


Please join me in congratulating Keith on his promotion.
 
Best wishes,
 
Andrew
