ACBJ’s Streetwise Media names new president
Streetwise Media, which operates technology and entrepreneurship news sites in four cities, announced Geoff Shaw will be president of the company.
Shaw, formerly chief operating officer at Sporting News, will oversee Streetwise’s four markets — Boston (BostInno); Washington, D.C. (DC Inno); Chicago (Chicago Inno); and Austin, Texas (Austin Inno).
“We’re in an age of tremendous technological change and not all of it — maybe not even most of it, in the long run — will come out of Silicon Valley,” Shaw said in a statement. “We’re already publishing stories and bringing people together at events in four of the most innovative, entrepreneurial cities in the world. I’m looking forward to building there and heading into new ones.”
Shaw replaces Leslie Garbarino as president of Streetwise.
Shaw will be based out of the Charlotte, N.C., headquarters of Streetwise’s parent company, American City Business Journals, a division of Advance Publications.
