The Atlantic Media Company has promoted Scott Havens from Vice President of Digital Strategy and Operation to Senior Vice President of Finance and Digital Operations. The move gives Havens responsibility over the company’s finances, and shifts the every day operations of its digital units to three business operations: The Atlantic, Government Executive and National Journal Group.
Justin Smith, President of the Atlantic Media Company, told Adweek that Havens has the chops to move the company in the right direction. “With the exception of marketing services business, which is more of a services model, the bulk of the opportunity we’re looking at is digital,” said Smith. “We thought it was really, really important that we put in charge of finance someone who really understands digital media.”
