We’re not prone to bragging about our accomplishments (cough cough), but today brings official word that MWW Group has hired Jason Chupick, the founding editor of this very website, as vice president of editorial operations.
Jason previously worked as VP of PR at Harper’s Magazine. His experience spans the worlds of journalism, public relations and digital media: In addition to time spent in the publishing industry, he worked at several boutique agencies in the New York City area, and he frequently speaks at industry events and conferences like last month’s Mediabistro webcast on increasing the visibility of your press releases.
MWW plans to use his “ability to combine editorial content technology and editorial expertise” to implement media production and placement strategies for clients.
A company blog post makes the (believable) claim that Chupick could market “milk to a cow” while noting that, as a member of MWW’s media innovation and product development group, he will oversee both the creation of branded content for clients and the conversion of said content from “owned to earned social and news media.”
We’d like to take a moment to say congratulations and wish him best of luck in this new position.
