Bloomberg’s digital leader has left company
Kevin Krim, who joined Bloomberg LP in 2009 to improve its website operations, has left the company, a spokesman confirmed Friday.
“Bloomberg.com has come a long way since Kevin joined nearly two and a half years ago. Traffic has increased 78 percent and revenue has more than tripled,” said spokesman Ty Trippet. “We will continue to evolve the web site for global senior business executives, and we wish Kevin the very best.”
Krim was the global head of Bloomberg Digital, where he was responsible for Bloomberg.com, BusinessWeek.com as well as new digital products for Bloomberg LP.
Krim oversaw Bloomberg’s online media businesses as well as the integration of the company’s television, radio, news and data content into current and new digital products targeted at business leaders. Krim’s team also develops advertising and subscription solutions for Bloomberg’s U.S. based and international online media properties, including the Japanese language site Bloomberg.co.jp.
Krim joined Bloomberg in 2009 and reported to Multimedia CEO Andy Lack.
Before joining Bloomberg, Krim served as vice president of product and strategy for Yahoo! HotJobs and Yahoo! Small Business, both of which were top five businesses for Yahoo! globally. Prior to joining Yahoo! in 2006, Krim served as general manager of LiveJournal.com, a global social network and blogging community.
Previously he was vice president for Web properties at LookSmart Ltd., where he led vertical search destinations including FindArticles.com, Furl.net, and Zeal.com.P.
