NEW YORK, March 14, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TheStreet (Nasdaq:TST), a leading digital financial media company, today announced the appointment of William H. Inman as Editor-in-Chief of the Company. An award-winning editor, Inman has spent more than twenty years in financial media, most recently serving as Editor-in-Chief of Institutional Investor.
"I am delighted to welcome Bill as our new Editor-in-Chief," said Elisabeth DeMarse, the Company's Chief Executive Officer. "Bill brings decades of experience covering financial markets and business news at leading media companies. Bill has managed and grown world class news operations. He also has played a prominent role in creating products that take advantage of new distribution technologies in the rapidly evolving media landscape. TheStreet's market moving news is perfect for social and mobile, which have our fastest rates of traffic growth and are a key focus for us going forward. Bill is the perfect combination of being a meticulous reporter and fantastic editor, who is well suited to build a newsroom that takes full advantage of these new distribution formats."
Inman worked at Bloomberg for more than fifteen years, where he spearheaded the company's award-winning electronic publishing. He also led the relaunch of bloomberg.com as a prime source of market intelligence for sophisticated investors, making it powerfully interactive and global. After Bloomberg, Inman joined Institutional Investor magazine as editor-in-chief, where he introduced an array of new media products in the U.S. and Asia.
"I am very excited to be joining this great organization at this moment in its storied history," said Inman. "TheStreet has a long record as a trusted, leading voice in financial journalism. This hard-earned reputation is the bedrock on which we will build new products that take advantage of the sea changes in the media industry, such as the rise of social media, online video and tablet devices, to reinvent the way investors view and interact with the markets."
"I'd also like to express my personal appreciation to my predecessor, Glenn Hall. Glenn came into this organization at the depths of the financial crisis and with smarts and skill kept TheStreet focused on its core mission — delivering clear-headed market intelligence to the individual investor. Now he moves on to new challenges and we wish him the very best."
