“As managing editor for Bloomberg Digital, Michael has accomplished a great deal in his two years at Bloomberg, collaborating with many teams across editorial, product, engineering, and sales to help architect our digital posture. He has helped lead our efforts around podcasts and digital video, where he has served as a leader in developing new products, such as Rithm, which he debuted on stage in front of industry leaders and peers at our Newfront presentation earlier this year. And, his passion, energy, understanding of the digital ecosystem, and creative instincts are not only infectious, but critical for our next phase of growth,” said Havens
“Michael will continue to partner with and work across many diverse teams, including editorial, product, engineering and sales, where he will play an important role in driving a more aggressive slate of global innovation. He’ll spend time in each region collaborating with our various teams, looking down range – 6 months to two years or more in the future – for new opportunities to grow our audience, engagement, and revenue. Michael’s remit will also include business model and commercial innovation and he’ll have his keen eye on disruptive threats and opportunities that our industry poses.”
Before Michael joined Bloomberg in 2014, he worked at Vox Media, where he was part of the team that drove the impressive growth of The Verge.
