“There has never been a better time to reinvent and disrupt the worlds of media, marketing and consulting, and in Andrew we are gaining a proven leader from the marketing and consulting world who has a successful track record of business transformation,” said Smith.
“Our ambition is simple and focused. Building on Bloomberg’s editorial leadership, world class global platforms, and unrivaled insight into the worlds business elite, we will create an entirely new model of media owner – one that marries the best thinking and talent from the worlds of consulting, marketing services and media. I can’t imagine a more exciting moment to join Justin, Jacki and Bloomberg Media’s world class team,” said Benett.
