Executive Mosaic, the parent company of GovCon Wire, hired Gerry Simone to serve as Editor-in-Chief.
“Throughout my career, I have thrived on working with respected journalists as a national spokesperson for area companies, ” Simone said. “I am compelled by Executive Mosaic’s unique media focus on stories about the corporate leaders and business of government contracting — one of the largest and most vibrant U.S. markets. I’m honored to lead the firm’s media business into 2011 and look forward to maintaining a strong record of excellence in producing daily news, profiles and features.”
Prior to joining Executive Mosaic, Simone enjoyed a successful career in public relations, securing high-profile coverage for government contractors and technology companies in top national financial and trade media and advocating for the right story to be told.
“Gerry is an accomplished and trusted adviser in online and print media, ” said Executive Mosaic CEO and Publisher Jim Garrettson. “We are delighted to have Gerry on board to take Executive Mosaic’s growing media properties to the next stage and to continue to build upon an already strong readership.”
Under Simone’s leadership, GovConExec magazine will soon launch its March issue showcasing leading government contractors’ perspectives on cloud computing. She will also provide editorial direction for more than five daily online news sites, including GovConWire.com, TheNewNewInternet.com, ExecutiveGov.com, ExecutiveBiz.com and GovConExecutive.com
