Bridget Williams Named President of Abrams Media

Bridget Williams has been named the new president of Dan Abrams’ Abrams Media. Williams was most recently senior vice president of business and audience development at Business Insider. She had been with BI for the past three years.

Prior to her time at BI, Williams was the president of Split Rock New Media, from 2007 to 2011.

In a memo annoucing the hire, Abrams wrote, “The timing is perfect. Bridget comes to us as Mediaite just had its biggest month ever and she is uniquely suited to help transform this rapidly growing business into a significant media company. This is a really exciting development for the business and I am confident that you will all come to like and respect her as much as I do.”
