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.

CQ Roll CallCQ Roll Call is restructuring staff to take a more aggressive approach to producing digital content, according to sources inside the pub. The marquee change is the creation of a new position, Chief Content Officer, and the promotion of Roll Call Editor David Rapp to fill the role. Rapp will be the top dog in the newsroom, overseeing content across all of CQ Roll Call’s platforms, with an emphasis on engaging consumers and coordinating Roll Call’s public-facing political coverage with CQ’s professional services.

Rapp moved to Roll Call a year ago from  BGOV, though he did work at CQ prior to that as editor and senior vice president.

Also as part of the reshuffling, Chief Technology Officer Dennis Arndt and Vice President of Marketing Valerie Voci will be moved to advisory roles. There should be more news on the changes at CQ Roll Call coming, so stay tuned for updates.
