FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SALT LAKE CITY, September 30, 2015 -- CompanyWeek Media announced this week that Alicia Cunningham has joined the content development team as business writer and market ambassador.
Bart Taylor, founder and publisher of CompanyWeek, said Knight will lead local content development efforts with the aim of highlighting Utah's growing manufacturing sector, in keeping with the editorial mission of the two-year old media franchise.
"We're excited that Alicia will be our editorial point person in Utah, something we've really needed to more effectively chronicle the contributions Utah manufacturers to the regional and national economy," Taylor said. "To have found someone with her background is of course a huge bonus."
Cunningham graduated from Brigham Young University with a B.A. in Public Relations and a B.A. in Political Science. She also graduated from George Mason School of Law with a specialty in International Trade and is an Associate Member of the Virginia Bar. Cunningham spent many years in politics and has worked for a state party, two senators and a congressman as well as the Legislative Counsel for a major trade association. She now divides her time raising four (gorgeous!) children and working as a business and legal writer.
Taylor said Cunningham will develop editorial profiles of growing Utah manufacturers, coordinate photo shoots with the publication's network of local photographers, and act as liaison for communications between industry and market stakeholders and relevant contacts at CompanyWeek.
Cunningham's work debuts this week with a profile of Salem, Utah's Bear Country Bees.
