“Jeana is an extremely talented, experienced and energetic professional who is dedicated to making positive changes to the look and content of Construction Business Owner,” says VP of Editorial, Michelle Segrest. “She brings fresh ideas to the table, and then springs into action to execute them with absolute excellence.”

Lori Ditoro joins the Cahaba Media Group editorial team as managing editor of Pumps & Systems and Upstream Pumping Solutions. Ditoro graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in History. She has been a writer and editor for 18 years. Her experience includes work as a writer and product development specialist for an educational publisher, managing editor of publications for an international consulting firm and an award-winning freelance writer for multiple regional publications and companies.

“Lori is extremely very intelligent and experienced,” says Segrest. “She has been able to learn quickly and adapt easily to the highly complicated material that makes Pumps & Systems the global leader in pumping technology. In addition, she has already made an impact in the quality of content for our new publication, Upstream Pumping Solutions.”
