SourceMedia Announces Launch of Research & Data Business

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 17, 2010) -  SourceMedia, a media company serving the financial services industry, today announced the launch of a syndicated research and data business to operate in tandem with its existing news and analysis, events and custom media operations.

The launch of the new operating unit advances SourceMedia's mission to assemble an information company comprising a full range of media products serving related segments of the financial services industry. Its initial focus will be on augmenting the data tools and content the company offers under its flagship brand American Banker.

The new unit will be led by Jim Moore, Ph.D., Managing Director of Research & Data. Moore joins SourceMedia with more than 30 years of experience in formulating, growing and managing subscription-based data and research businesses. The former chairman and chief executive of Highline Financial, Moore was responsible for re-engineering that company's Web platform and databases.

"This is an important element of our strategic vision -- to increase the value of our existing products and services while at the same time enhancing those offerings with higher-value tools and content," said SourceMedia CEO Doug Manoni. "I have great confidence in Jim's ability to carry out our shared vision for this business as we expand our product offerings with diversified information services."

Building out a portfolio of syndicated research programs and decision-supporting business applications while leveraging SourceMedia's strong footprint in banking, capital markets, technology and professional services is a centerpiece of the new unit's mission. "SourceMedia's subscribers have proven their willingness to participate in surveys and other collaborative research efforts that give us a significant advantage in building cooperative research databases and business tools," says Moore, Managing Director of Research & Data.
