Greg Bartalos, the editor of RIA Intel, a website from Institutional Investor, writes about the reason for its success as it turns one year old.

Bartalos writes, “Over several weeks and interviews, pressure built as I struggled to find a reporter. I was admittedly extremely picky but, given that RIA Intel was a new publication (and small operation), this hire would play a critical role in determining the website’s success.

“Then, as if beamed down by a “Star Trek” transporter, Michael Thrasher suddenly materialized. When we met in Midtown Manhattan, he was brimming with energy, great story ideas, and a winning attitude. By all appearances, he had done terrific work as a reporter at WealthManagement.com for two and a half years covering industry trends and the largest wealth managers.

“Michael was soon on board and immediately demonstrated a knack for developing sophisticated story angles. His interpersonal skills, high journalistic standards, and tireless work ethic quickly became evident as did rising website traffic.
