    Mindshare Interactive Campaigns is pleased to announce that David Rapp, former Editor and Senior Vice President of Congressional Quarterly, Inc, is joining Mindshare Interactive Campaigns as a senior consultant in its editorial services practice.


    For the past 10 years Rapp was the top editorial executive of Congressional Quarterly Inc., a Washington, D.C. publisher of information on government and politics. He oversaw the convergence and growth of CQ’s print and online publications, managing an integrated newsroom of 130 reporters, editors, researchers and database managers.

Rapp also oversaw the design, launch and operations of seven new specialty publications, both subscription and advertising based, all distributed exclusively on the Web. During that time, he also redesigned and repositioned CQ’s major print products, the CQ Weekly news magazine, the CQ Today news daily and CQ’s Politics in America, the most authoritative reference book on members of Congress, to attract and incorporate new advertising revenue streams. …
