As Executive Director of the Newspaper Consortium, Rusty is a strategic leader who helps the 700+ newspaper organization maximize and grow its partnership with Yahoo! across revenue and content channels and technology platforms. His insight, intelligence and organization keep the Consortium focused on the bigger picture. In a partnership that generates tens of millions of dollars annually, Rusty is cool-headed executive and stays focused amid multiple layers of change. He also runs a tight ship on expenses. As the industry – and this partnership – continue to evolve, I’m confident Rusty’s leadership will be an ace in the hole for us.
