NewWest CEO And Founder Moves, Uh, More West

bay area news project logoJonathan Weber, who co-founded online media startup NewWest.net, is leaving to become editor-in-chief of the Bay Area News Project.

For the past year, he wrote a column about being the CEO of a small business for Slate’s The Big Money, and recently he wrote about why he’s handing his biz off to someone else.

“I’ve also struggled at times with my own weaknesses as a CEO. I think I’ve done a pretty good job with the product vision, the editorial, and the conferences, and I’m very proud of the team we have put together. But I’ve learned that I am not a very good sales manager, and the marketing side doesn’t always come easily either.”

At BANP, the CEO post will be filled by Lisa Frazier, currently a partner in McKinsey & Company’s San Francisco office.

And don’t worry about NewWest. Sounds like it’ll be in good hands too.
