NEW YORK (PRWEB) May 08, 2013
SourceMedia has named Michael Scarchilli Editor in Chief of The Bond Buyer, SourceMedia’s flagship brand providing news, analysis and data about the $3.7 trillion United States municipal finance market.
As Editor in Chief, Scarchilli is charged with serving and expanding The Bond Buyer’s diverse readership base, which extends from public-sector finance officers to investment bankers and bond lawyers. An eight-year veteran of The Bond Buyer, Scarchilli was previously Managing Editor, responsible for the day-to-day operations of the brand’s web site and newspaper.
“Mike has brought terrific energy, deep market knowledge, and a sharp focus on The Bond Buyer’s digital mission during his tenure as Managing Editor,” said Richard Melville, Editorial Director for SourceMedia’s Banking and Capital Markets Group. “We’re extremely excited about The Bond Buyer’s future and look forward to Mike’s stewardship of one of our flagship brands.”
Scarchilli will lead The Bond Buyer’s editorial staff – in New York, Arlington, Va., and bureaus nationwide-- overseeing content development and creation for the brand’s online service and daily digital and print editions. Among other things, he will focus on deepening audience engagement, and continuing an ongoing expansion of the brand’s social media, rich media and data competencies.
“Adding my name to the storied list of leaders of this 122-year-old institution is an absolute honor and privilege,” said Scarchilli. “I look forward to spearheading The Bond Buyer’s continued development as a real-time online news service, and maintaining its position as required reading for participants in the municipal bond market.”
“The municipal bond market is going to face significant changes and challenges in the next few years – from a new wave of Federal tax reform efforts to tough fiscal decisions at the local government level,” said Michael Stanton, senior vice president for capital markets at SourceMedia. “Mike’s intellectual, personal and editorial capabilities uniquely qualify him to understand those issues, and put them in the proper context for our industry subscribers and a broader audience of investors and policymakers.”
The Bond Buyer also announced that Stephen Kleege has joined its staff as Executive Editor, reporting to Scarchilli. Kleege returns to SourceMedia after 11 years at Bloomberg, where he edited coverage on a variety of topics, including real estate, markets, and economics. He spent the decade before that at American Banker, ultimately managing capital markets, mortgage, and investment-products coverage as Senior Editor. He has also worked as a reporter and editor for National Thrift News, the predecessor to National Mortgage News.
