BLOOMBERG MEDIA CEO JUSTIN B. SMITH has named JACKI KELLEY as COO for Media, responsible for leading the business operations of BLOOMBERG’s worldwide multi-platform media operation, which includes web, mobile, television, digital video, radio, print magazines and live events. KELLEY will serve as SMITH’s deputy across the Media Group and focus on driving global revenue growth, brand strength, and developing the company’s multi-platform media offerings. She will start on SEPTEMBER 1, 2014 and will be based out of BLOOMBERG LP’s global headquarters in NEW YORK CITY.
“This is a coup for our organization and important talent milestone as we implement our new strategy. Jacki is a force of nature -- a perfect a mix of shrewd business acumen and creativity with a clear track record of success,” said SMITH. “Adding a leader of this caliber is major step towards our goal: building the leading, next-generation global business media company. Over the last few months, we’ve had a steady stream of top talent join the strong team already here at BLOOMBERG to implement this new vision.”
“There is an insatiable and magnetic ambition at BLOOMBERG,” said KELLEY. “After looking at what is being built in the media operation here, I realized it’s one of those rare opportunities where if I did not do it, I may wonder what I missed. The opportunity for BLOOMBERG to take advantage of all the change in the industry is immense. Justin has laid out a bold plan to do just that, and I feel really fortunate to help lead the team making the vision a reality.”
