United Business Media Reorganizes CMP Technology
United Business Media (UBM) announced early this morning that it will restructure CMP Technology (CMP) into four new divisions, effectively eliminating the CMP name from the company. Each new business will have its own CEO, with each CEO reporting to UBM Chief Executive David Levin.
“This is the next step in the strategic evolution of how we serve our technology market customers—and we’re doing it from a position of strength,” says Levin.
The four new businesses are: TechWeb, formerly CMP’s Business Technology Group, which will be led by Tony Uphoff; Everything Channel, formerly CMP Channel, to be led by Robert Faletra; TechInsights, formerly CMP’s Electronics Group, now led by Paul Miller; and Think Services, formerly CMP’s Game, Dr. Dobb’s and International Customer Management Group, which will be led by Philip Chapnick.
“As our strong and improving results for 2007 show, each of the operations within CMP has been successfully serving its specific markets, but going forward, as independent and focused businesses, they will be able to get even closer to their audiences and customers, developing products and services for these communities faster and with focus,” says Levin.
