CQ Roll Call has fired Dwight Mulbrachdt for poor sales performance. He is not part of the recent spate of layoffs. He was not meeting his quotas.
To provide some context, Mulbrachdt was brought in by former CQ Roll Call Director of Digital Advertising Braden Wright in May, who left for Politico in early August. Earlier in the month Wright was hired by Politico, for which he has Mark Walters, formerly at CQ Roll Call and now with Politico, to thank.
As one industry insider explained it to me, “Underperforming sales people get axed. It happens.”
We sought comment from the PR department. They declined.
