Guy's innovative career spans decades as senior director of product management at WideOrbit, general manager of mobile at GateHouse Media, vice president and chief digital officer at Calkins Media, a sales and strategic leader at The New York Times, and most recently, the founding manager of the Google News Initiative (GNI) funded Local Media Association Technology Resource Center.
