Les Kovach Settles In as Editorial Director of TabbFORUM
NEW YORK & LONDON --(Business Wire)--
With TabbFORUM's worldwide membership approaching 15,000, Les Kovach,
who had been appointed editor in late October 2012 only days before
Hurricane Sandy knocked out power across Lower Manhattan, has taken the
reins at the global online capital markets site, driving development
efforts for its editorial expansion.
Kovach moved to TabbFORUM
after eight years at UBM TechWeb (News - Alert) (UBM.L) where he served as group
content manager, promoted from managing editor in 2008. He directed
content creation and delivery and ensured overall editorial quality for
the InformationWeek Financial Services unit's four brands, which include
Wall Street & Technology and Advanced Trading, driving the transition
from a traditional, print-centric news organization to a leading-edge
digital media group targeted at senior business and technology
"My responsibility as TabbFORUM's editorial director is to facilitate a
richer, broader, deeper stream of conversations, shaping issues across
the capital markets. The goal is to create a more unique and valuble resource
where market professionals can follow industry developments, exchange
ideas and engage in thought leadership on developing news and issues,"
One of his first efforts was to announce a Hurricane Sandy Red Cross relief
effort, still underway, raising nearly $6,000 and rising daily.
Prior to UBM, Kovach held managing editor positions from 1999 to 2003 at
RAMP magazine, WOOF.com and Wideband magazine, and was an editor at
Street & Smith's Sport Group, an Advance Publications title. He earned a
B.S. from the Jones School of Business at SUNY Geneseo, NY.
