New biz editor in Las Vegas
Richard Perez-Feria has been named business editor of the Las Vegas Sun and editor in chief of its In Business Las Vegas publication.
A story on the Sun’s site states, “At People en Español, Pérez-Feria overhauled the nation’s best-selling Spanish-language magazine, making it an unexpected critical and commercial success. Previously, Pérez-Feria was senior vice president of Editorial and Entertainment at República, a Miami-based advertising, interactive and branding agency. There, he focused on the firm’s Web and media projects, entertainment, sports and celebrity clients.
“‘I’ve been very fortunate in my career to work with some of the best people in our business and help create beautiful, compelling publications and websites filled with sound journalism,’ Pérez-Feria said. ‘Not only are we going to continue that trend here at GMG and In Business Las Vegas, we’re going to challenge ourselves to achieve even more. I can’t wait to get started.’
“Before People en Español, Pérez-Feria was editor-in-chief of San Francisco city magazine 7×7, where he concurrently was an editorial consultant to the San Francisco Chronicle’s Sunday magazine, working directly with Editor Phil Bronstein. In 2000, Pérez-Feria was Weider Publications’ vice president of Editorial and Creative Services, overseeing the publishing company’s New York City-based specialty division.”
