FCW names editor in chief
Paul McCloskey, editor of civic.com and a member of the editorial team that launched Federal Computer Week, last week was named editor in chief of FCW Media Group by president and publisher Edith Holmes.
As editor in chief, McCloskey will direct the creation and presentation of content for Federal Computer Week, civic.com, and the publications' World Wide Web sites, www.fcw.com and www.civic.com. In addition to the reporters and the production staff, McCloskey will manage the technical analysts in the FCW Test Center.
McCloskey served as news editor, managing editor and executive editor of FCW from 1987 until 1994, when he became editor in chief of America's Networks, published by Advanstar Communications. He rejoined FCW in 1996 as editor of a new monthly publication for the state and local market, civic.com. In civic.com's second year, the American Society of Business Press Editors selected it as Magazine of the Year.
"I am confident that Paul has the background - both in publishing and this market - to build on our integrated editorial strategy for print and online," Holmes said.
"Paul has the vision and commitment essential to assume this role at this exciting and challenging time in our company's history," she added.
McCloskey replaces Anne Armstrong, who has been named president of Virginia's Center for Innovative Technology.
