Rapp named FCW editor-in-chief

David Rapp, former editor and senior vice president of Congressional Quarterly, has been named editor-in-chief of Federal Computer Week and editorial director at 1105 Government Information Group.

Rapp will start work Dec. 29, said Anne Armstrong, president of 1105 Government Information Group. As editorial director, Rapp will coordinate the various magazines and Web sites the company publishes.

Rapp was CQ's top editorial executive from 1997 to 2006. During that period, he oversaw the creation and development of the award-winning CQ.com (www.cq.com). He also led the redesign and repositioning of CQ's flagship print products — CQ Today and CQ Weekly. In addition, Rapp helped develop and launch several electronic newsletters.

Rapp left CQ in January 2007 after 22 years to start his own publishing company. Later that year, he created TravelBeat.net, a collection of travel blogs.

1105 Government Information Group also hired a new marketing director, Stephanie Decker. She previously worked at The Weekly Standard and Politico and will direct the efforts of a three-person marketing team to promote the group’s media efforts in the government marketplace.
