Bloomberg Sales Dept. Gets Another Jolt

Bloomberg Government’s sales department is experiencing an aftershock. Yet another salesperson is leaving the entity more readily known as BGOV. This time it’s Joanna Matthews who will become National Sales Director of CQ Roll Call, where she worked previously. Matthews is being replaced by Rob Recklaus, who is now leading the Congressional sales team for BGOV. “Having served as Communications Director and Chief of Staff for Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.) for eight years he has a deep understanding of our client,” said a Bloomberg spokesman, explaining that Recklaus has been on the Congressional sales team at BGOV since 2010.

The tremors may not end anytime soon. An executive at a Washington-based competitor says there have been a number of BGOV editors and writers looking for work within the past two weeks.

On Wednesday morning, as we reported, Bloomberg fired three top BGOV sales personnel, including the head of sales Leon Frazier. Frazier has since been replaced by Josh Eastright, who was already working there. They’re now expanding Eastright’s sales duties to include BGOV.
