Nashville's Martin said in broad new IT position

Anonymous@9:32 a.m. today writes the following:

"Stacey Martin, currently our VP of Operations and IT Director for the South Group [based at Nashville, Tenn.], has been named Director/Enterprise NewsGate Practice for the Gannett Information Technology Department. She will form, lead and manage the technology team that will provide Enterprise NewsGate application management and support for all customers across the Gannett organization. This is a key leadership role needed for the overall success of this significant project. Stacey and her family will be relocating to the D.C. area."

Note: NewsGate is the new front-end system uniting virtually all of the 82 U.S. newspapers for the five page design and pagination hubs. Those hubs are at Asbury Park, N.J., Louisville, Ky., Des Moines; Nashville, Tenn., and Phoenix. The regional South Group is based in Nashville. Martin was one of 35 winners last year of President's Rings in the U.S. newspapers division.

  1. Need a little disclosure here. Stacy is married to a VP/sales for CCI.

  2. Uh-oh. Isn't a President's Ring akin to a death knell?

  3. If it is not multi-platform and Gannett-wide from the start, it is just another consolidation effort. Like replacing deck chairs with benches on the Titanic.

  9. I think it's just that, a coincidence. The sale was done a long time ago. Gannett has been in bed with CCI for a very long time. Stacey is very qualified for the new position. She earned it, and any speculation to the contrary is just trash.

  10. Besides, who at any level in gannett gives a crap about ethics?

  11. Actually, Stacy has been involved in CCI installs since around 2002 or 2003. She was an assistant to Anne Saul at one point if my memory is operating correctly (a little dicey for an aging former Gannett veteran). With a large CCI install under my belt, I'd say she's more than qualified. And it is NewsGate.
