Former Wall Street Journal Publisher L. Gordon Crovitz has joined the board of directors of the ProQuest digital-information provider.
“In addition to his vast information industry experience, Gordon has a particularly strategic view of the newspaper business — one that we’ll call upon as we plot ProQuest’s growing role in defining and accessing digital newspaper content,? said ProQuest Chairman Andrew Snyder in a statement.
As president of Dow Jones’ Consumer Media Group, Crovitz was involved in integrating the print, online, digital, TV, and other editions of WSJ, MarketWatch.com, and Barron’s across news, advertising, marketing, and other functions.
Crovitz was also involved in the redesign of the print WSJ, the growth of the online edition, and the creation of the Factiva online news service.
