paidContent parent ContentNext Media announced the promotions of Ernie Sander to executive editor and Staci D. Kramer to editor.
Sander has served as managing editor since 2008, with previous experience at The Wall Street Journal and the Associated Press. Kramer was the first hire by founder Rafat Ali in 2004 and was elevated to co-founder and executive vice president in 2008.
ContentNext Media CEO Caroline Little said:
Ernie is a skilled editor and manager, has a terrific strategic vision, and has developed many new features for us, including Leading Voices. He is the editor that any publisher would die for. Plus, he keeps us laughing in the office — a very important skill.
Staci is a walking encyclopedia — or Google — in this digital age, for everything paid content. But even more important, Staci is an agile and insightful reporter and editor. Staci is also a frequent speaker and moderator, and plays a critical role in setting our strategy and growing the company. Staci will be taking the editorial lead on our conferences in the future, while continuing to report and edit for us. Perhaps most notably, she is the only person here who has covered floods, droughts, crime, the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and the World Series!
I couldn’t be happier to have two such fine professionals and collaborators as Ernie and Staci on our team.
