IDG’s CXO Media Welcomes Mattoon

BOSTON CXO Media said it has appointed Christopher Mattoon director of business development for its executive programs.

Mattoon, 40, will focus on developing and managing key sponsor relationships for the company’s conference division, which is dedicated to serving the information needs of high-level corporate executives.

“Chris is uniquely suited to develop this same level of customization and creativity when identifying and serving the needs of our sponsors,” said Jennifer Richards, a CXO svp, in a statement.

Mattoon succeeds John Amato, who went to IDG’s Computerworld in a similar capacity.

Most recently, Mattoon served as sales manager for The Boston Globe’s BostonWorks operation, where he managed sales and marketing for an extensive lineup of print and online products, as well as sponsorships and special events. Mattoon has also held several positions, including conference sponsorship sales director, at Key 3 Media, the producer of IT trade shows and conferences such as Comdex.

Framingham, Mass.-based CXO publishes CIO, CMO and CSO magazines and their corresponding Web sites.
