CQ Roll Call Restructure Part Deux

An internal memo from Managing Editor Keith White on the restructure at CQ Roll Call reveals more changes. We already reported on David Rapp‘s promotion to the newly created Chief Content Officer position, but it seems there’s much more to the restructure as well. The unifying theme is a regrouping of resources based on function as opposed to separate business focuses. We also previously reported that VP of Marketing Valerie Voci had been moved to an advisory role. The memo reveals that this is a temporary position, as Voci will be leaving CQ Roll Call shortly to “return to running her own business.”

Senior Vice President of Advocacy and Engagement Peter Anthony has been named Chief Product Officer, overseeing a new combined product and IT team. Anthony will be tasked with developing and designing new products for CQ Roll Call, and identifying new potential markets for new and existing products. Former CTO Dennis Arndt will be advising Anthony, as well as other company leadership, in his new roll.

Meg Hargreaves has also been named Chief Retention Officer and Rick Rockelli is the head of a new, unified Sales and Circulation Marketing team. Read the whole memo after the jump.

The NYT broke the news Sunday night that on Nov. 13 Roll Call and CQ Today will officially combine their print operations into Roll Call. CQ Today stories will continue to appear online, but not under that name specifically; it will no longer be in print and online it will be cq.com, CQ Weekly.

While it isn’t clear whether the name plate will be used for both the online and print versions, the internal memo says it is for “RollCall.com” and publicist Rebecca Gale called it a “working draft only” for the upcoming print merger.

For several months we’ve been bringing you backgrounders on the inside meetings and process leading up to the merging of CQ and Roll Call as well as the more recent news of massive layoffs. Roll Call and CQ will continue to operate their respective online publications such as CQ Weekly and other features.
