Pivot Conference and Social Week Announce New Executive Team

Mike Edelhart Named President; Seth Rosenblatt Named Chief Financial Officer of Tomorrow Project, LLC

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 8, 2011) - The Tomorrow Project, producers of The Pivot Conference, Contact Summit, and Social Week today announced a new leadership team. Mike Edelhart, currently the company's Chief Revenue Officer, will become President. Seth Rosenblatt, currently Finance Director, will become the company's Chief Financial Officer. Edelhart and Rosenblatt will continue to work closely with The Tomorrow Project owner and CEO, William Lohse, as the company's executive triumvirate.

"Social is the biggest change I've seen in a long career," said incoming President Mike Edelhart, "Bill had the vision to jump in early to help bring leaders together as this huge universe forms itself. The potential to bring events into the ongoing conversation around social is limitless. I'm excited to help our company work to bring success to others in the social sphere."

Lohse founded Tomorrow Project, LLC in 2009 with the goal of delivering a next generation of face-to-face experiences focused purely on Social, the most extensive disruption of information markets in history. Beginning with Pivot in 2010, and followed by Contact and the many Social Week partner conferences in 2011, the company has a growth trajectory that required deeper management.

Edelhart, Rosenblatt and Lohse have a long history of success, individually and as a unit. They worked together on some of tech's most dominant publications and events (Interop, Seybold, Java One, as well as PC Magazine, PC Week and MacUser) at Ziff Davis and SoftBank. Individually, they have started and run successful tech start-ups, served as investors and managed information businesses of note.
