Business Insider Names Mario Ruiz Its Communications SVP

You're hired!

When you are in the PRNewserverse, you visit many websites — all of them, purveyors of insightful information, links, and other tidbits.

Chief among those blogs is Business Insider, so when the website announces its senior vice president of communications, we take notice.

Meet Mario Ruiz.

Ruiz has a decorated career as a vp of media relations for DKC and with AOL/Huffington Post. At both stops in his career, he has positioned his clients and stories for websites, including Business Insider. So, it’s nice when things come full circle.

“Mario served as our PR consultant during a pivotal period when we were growing especially rapidly, and we came to know him as an exceptional corporate communications and media professional. We are thrilled to be able to bring him in-house,” said Henry Blodget, CEO of Business Insider.

“Mario’s experience and deep knowledge of the digital and media landscape, coupled with his ability to think strategically while getting results, makes him an excellent addition to Business Insider as we continue to grow our brand around the world.”

This is a brand that has grown within PR circles, so stand up and golf clap folks. Mazel to Ruiz.
