Also, BW has promoted Joel Tesch to northern California regional manager. The former northern California regional sales manager joined the wire in 1999.
And Dylan Frusciano — who came to BW in 2001 — was promoted from regional manager to vice president, Southwest.
In addition, the wire and Taiwan’s Central News Agency have entered into a direct agreement concerning BW’s access to various media outlets — including more than 100 Taiwanese newspapers. Previously, BW and CNA indirectly worked together via an intermediary.
