Cooke Named Publisher
Summit Business Media announced in August that Credit Union Times Editor-in-Chief Sarah Snell Cooke had been promoted to publisher/editor-in-chief.
In addition, David Janoff, formerly East Coast sales director, was promoted to national sales director.
“I’m very pleased to take on my new responsibilities, managing the business side of Credit Union Times as well as editorial,” Cooke said. “CUTimes.com is an online leader for breaking credit union news complemented with deeper analysis in the print and online magazines, providing our readers and advertisers with the information they need to continually improve their businesses.”
Cooke will focus on shaping and executing digital growth and product extension strategies. She is responsible for overall financial performance, setting strategic direction and ensuring the franchise remains the leading source of information and insight for credit union executives.
Cooke has been with CU Times since Sept. 1, 2000, rising up the ranks from Washington reporter to editor-in-chief and now publisher/editor-in-chief. Prior to that, she also wrote for Credit Union Regulatory Insider. She has a bachelor’s degree in political science with a minor in journalism and is pursuing an MBA.
In his new role, Janoff is responsible for managing the sales team and driving revenue to achieve financial goals. He will also work closely with Cooke and her team to develop and execute sustainable revenue opportunities and help shape and execute a digital growth strategy.
Prior to joining Credit Union Times in April as sales manager for the Northeast, Janoff spent 18 years at Pennwell as senior vice president of publishing and president of research, running its largest profit center, and most recently was vice president of sales at FierceMarkets.
