Constance (Connie) Sayers has been promoted to Chief Revenue Officer, Troy Schneider has been promoted to President of Content Brands and Dave MacIntosh joins GovExec as Executive Vice President of Data Sales. The announcement was made today by Tim Hartman, CEO, GovExec.

This new leadership structure signals the imperative to provide clients with best-in-class solutions from across the expansive GovExec portfolio.

With Connie taking on a new role, Troy Schneider has been promoted to president of the combined portfolio of GovExec and Public Sector 360’s content brands. He will oversee operations, content, audience growth, and marketing. He will report to Connie.

“Connie led the growth and transformation of GovExec over the last nine years,” said Tim Hartman. “We have acquired 12 companies and as we have grown, our desire to provide best-in-class solutions for our clients has been paramount. Connie will provide company-wide oversight of all growth and revenue initiatives, bringing her expertise in operations, data sales, and advertising to the full suite of companies that make up GovExec.”

Hartman continued, “Having a well-respected leader like Troy who understands all sides of content, operations, and audience development lead our content brands will set us up for great future success across the federal, state and local, and defense sectors that we serve.”

Expanding data sales will be key to the next phase of growth for GovExec. In the newly created role of EVP, Data Sales, Dave MacIntosh will focus on business development and sourcing new data streams to grow the revenue for the software and data products including GovTribe, The Atlas, Military Periscope, and Forecast International. MacIntosh joins the company with 25 years of experience in startup and high-growth data revenue leadership roles. 

“Dave brings an expertise in business development and growing data revenue streams to support the company's transformation to a technology-driven company,” said Sayers to whom he will report. “I am really excited for Dave to build out our SaaS and DaaS models to provide more actionable intelligence tools to the market and to reach more customers.”
