GateHouse Media LLC has hired Adam Reinebach to serve as CEO and president of the company’s recently acquired business-to-business publishing unit, Dolan Publishing, owner of The Daily Record.
Dolan, comprised of 39 print and online publications, is a provider of industry news for the legal, financial, real estate and government affairs sectors in 17 markets nationwide.
Reinebach’s appointment is effective Feb. 8.
“Amid an increasingly crowded digital landscape, the Dolan brands have retained a loyal base of paid subscribers who rely on our expert, proprietary content,” Reinebach said. “Building a high level of engagement with these communities puts us in a unique position to create marketing solutions that serve customers at a regional and local level.”
Most recently, Reinebach launched and led Responsive Partners, a digital consultancy specializing in business-to-business turnarounds. Previously, he served as executive vice president and managing director at SourceMedia, where he ran the diversified media company’s professional services brands and its paid subscriptions business. During his nine years at the company, Reinebach also held executive positions leading technology, circulation marketing and custom solutions.
Prior to SourceMedia, he was a vice president at Thomson Financial, where he was publisher of its private equity brands and ran the research and data group at Venture Economics. A frequent blogger and trained journalist, Adam started his B2B media career as a reporter for Investment Dealers’ Digest. He is a graduate of Rutgers University.
“Adam is an accomplished senior executive with significant sales, marketing and technology experience in the B2B media and information space,” GateHouse Media CEO Kirk Davis said. “I anticipate B2B publishing will present exciting growth opportunities for our company and am thrilled to have Adam leading these efforts.”
GateHouse Media, headquartered in Pittsford, New York, is a wholly owned subsidiary of New Media Investment Group Inc., which has a diversified portfolio of local media assets and seeks to grow existing advertising and digital marketing businesses. GateHouse Media is one of the largest publishers of locally based print and online media in the U.S. as measured by its 125 daily publications spread across 32 states.
In 2014, what was then The Dolan Company entered a pre-packaged debt reorganization from which it emerged under the ownership of Bayside Capital Inc., a private investment company.
New Media Investment Group and GateHouse completed a $35 million acquisition of Dolan from Bayside on Dec. 31, 2015.
GateHouse had filed for bankruptcy protection in 2013. The papers of the post-bankruptcy GateHouse, as well as some additional assets, eventually were combined in a new public company, New Media Investment Group.
