WASHINGTON, D.C., April 9, 2012 - Hanley Wood LLC, the leading business-to-business media and information company serving the construction industry, announced today that Frank Anton will transition from his current position as Chief Executive Officer to a Chairman role in early May.
Concurrent with this change, Peter Goldstone will rejoin Hanley Wood as the company’s Chief Executive Officer. Goldstone has been serving as President of Government Executive Media Group, which is the business-to-business media division of Atlantic Media. Prior to that, Goldstone spent 11 years with Hanley Wood, most recently as the company’s President.
“After spending over 20 great years with Hanley Wood in positions of increasing operational responsibility and following the successful completion of our recent balance sheet recapitalization, I felt that it was time to take a step back so I could focus more of my time on helping the company from a higher-level strategic perspective,” said Anton. “Given how much I care about Hanley Wood and its employees, I wouldn’t have felt comfortable making this move if it weren’t for the fact that I was able to recruit such a high-caliber and dynamic leader as Peter Goldstone back to the company.”
Anton added, “I’m excited to work closely with Peter to drive Hanley Wood’s next stage of growth, and I’m confident that the company’s best days still lie ahead.”
Goldstone said, “First, I want to express my deep appreciation to David Bradley and Justin Smith of Atlantic Media for the opportunity they have provided me. Atlantic Media is a great company, and it was an honor and privilege to work there. I wish them great success in the future.”
Goldstone added, “At the same time, I am thrilled to be rejoining Hanley Wood, which was my home for 11 years. I also feel fortunate to team up once again with my good friend, Frank Anton. We have been solid partners, and we share a passion for aggressively growing this business. Although the next chapter of growth will most certainly look different, Hanley Wood will continue to lead and serve the construction market with robust engagement platforms and information products. I am eager to get started.”
