The runaway train better known as Bloomberg Government continues on it’s destructive, uncertain path. Yet another senior sales employee is leaving Bloomberg to return to CQ Roll Call, FishbowlDC has learned. Beth Bronder, head of Federal Sales, is returning to her former employer.
Earlier this week Bloomberg fired Leon Frazier, the head of sales, along with two top sales personnel followed by the departure of Joanna Matthews, who is also returning to CQ Roll Call. Please note: Matthews was not fired from Bloomberg. She elected to return to her former employer as National Director of Sales.
Frazier has been replaced by Josh Eastright; Matthews by Rob Recklaus. Where this all will end no one yet knows. While Bloomberg PR is painting this as a restructuring, we’re hearing other Bloomberg Government employees have also been let go, including three product managers and two multimedia employees.
UPDATE: See the CQ Roll Call memo welcoming Bronder back. Despite her leaving for Bloomberg, they say she has a “profound belief” in their brands.
