Justin Smith Sets Bloomberg’s Priorities

Announces '100-day' strategy plan, new business hire

It's been pretty quiet since Justin Smith started as CEO of the Bloomberg Media Group Sept. 18. But today, he sent around a memo announcing a “hundred-day strategy process” to chart the company’s course for growth for the next few years. The effort will involve 100-plus people at the company, including many top managers, working in 10 to 15 groups on ways to grow the company's various platforms.
