Insurance and financial industries publisher Summit Business Media announced today that it has appointed Andrew L. Goodenough as president.
In his new role, Goodenough will serve as operating head of the company and will lead a number of acquisition initiatives. “Andy has done a wonderful job in the initial stages of our buildup, which is currently on plan,” Summit Business Media CEO William Reilly said.
Reilly—former F+W chairman and Primedia founder—will remain as chairman and CEO. CFO Thomas Flynn will report to Reilly while other executives will report to Goodenough.
A b-to-b company started by Reilly with backing from Wind Point Partners, SBM in July acquired both Wicks Business Information and Agent Media Corporation. Late in 2006, the company was essentially formed around the double acquisition of Pfingsten Publishing and Highline Business Media.
