First Street Adds Account Development Manager, Data Analyst

CQ Press will add two new addresses to its First Street source of extensive lobbyist data, which is now set to launch in April — email addresses for new account development manager Christopher Austin and new data analyst Melissa Burt.

Austin had been a national account manager for Time Warner Book Group, Stackpole Books, and Harlequin Retail, while Burt was a data contractor with CQ Press.

An exclusive private beta of First Street will launch this week, followed by a wider, public beta in March.

First Street publisher Jasper Simons said:

With the First Street launch just weeks away, this is an exciting time at CQ Press. We welcome Christopher and Melissa as we take the final steps toward launching this practice-changing business-intelligence platform.
