Thomson Reuters CEO Gets an Earful from Newspaper Guild

Chris Roush over at Talking Biz News has a copy of the email recently sent to Thomson Reuters CEO James Smith by The Newspaper Guild of New York.

It’s not a bad idea to start off such a missive with a little sarcasm, and thus, the Guild begins by asking “Jim” – ‘Are your paychecks being processed correctly? Because ours aren’t.’ After dropping in a second comical reference to the recent polar vortex, the Guild gets down to complaints business:

This latest example of payroll incompetence follows major errors in 2012 and 2013 when Guild-covered employees were either over- or underpaid by significant amounts, and were (again) not paid for approved overtime. Guild representatives also are reporting an increase in the number of individual payroll errors, particularly for overtime and time off.

HuffPost Appoints New President And CRO

Just a few months after naming Eric Hippeau CEO, The Huffington Post today announced a new executive appointment.

Greg Coleman, former executive vice president of global sales at Yahoo!, has been picked to succeed James Smith as chief revenue officer at HuffPo. Coleman will also be taking on the role of president for the online publication.

Most recently, Coleman served as president of Platform-A, AOL‘s advertising business. Before that he worked as president and CEO of the start-up NetSeer and served as EVP of global sales at Yahoo!. He also previously worked as senior vice president at Reader’s Digest Association, was the founding publisher of Memories magazine and headed up advertising efforts at Woman’s Day.

Currently, Coleman is an adjunct professor at The McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University, his alma mater, and sits on the board of the Advertising Council, where he formerly held the post of chairman.

Hippeau, managing partner of venture capital firm SoftBank Capital and HuffPost board member, was named CEO in June, replacing Betsy Morgan, who left the company and vacated her seat on the board.
