Wash­ing­ton, DC; June 10, 2014 ““ Jo­hanna Derlega has been pro­moted to seni­or vice pres­id­ent, Na­tion­al Journ­al LIVE and Ad­vert­ising, Poppy Mac­Don­ald, Na­tion­al Journ­al pres­id­ent and pub­lish­er an­nounced today. In this ex­pan­ded role, Ms. Derlega, who has served as gen­er­al man­ager of the brand’s events di­vi­sion since Ju­ly 2013, will add over­sight of all ad­vert­ising and events rev­en­ue growth to her port­fo­lio, while con­tinu­ing to lead the events di­vi­sion. She is based in Wash­ing­ton and re­ports to Ms. Mac­Don­ald.

“I couldn’t be more ex­cited to have Jo­hanna as a part­ner in our con­tin­ued growth,” said Ms. Mac­Don­ald. “Jo­hanna is trus­ted by our cli­ents, is a proven lead­er in busi­ness de­vel­op­ment strategy, and is praised as a man­ager who gets the best work out of her team. There is no ques­tion her lead­er­ship will best serve our strategy to be first to mar­ket with in­nov­at­ive ad­vert­ising plat­forms, sup­por­ted by seam­less ex­e­cu­tion and de­liv­ery for our ad­vert­ising part­ners.”

A Wash­ing­ton nat­ive, Derlega began her ad­vert­ising ca­reer at The Hill News­pa­per, work­ing her way up from ac­count ex­ec­ut­ive to dir­ect­or of its ad­vert­ising di­vi­sion. Since join­ing Na­tion­al Journ­al just un­der a year ago, she has quickly grown the over­all busi­ness by 61% with more an­nu­al events and by coin­ing new live formats, in­clud­ing re­gion­ally based policy sum­mits geared to sup­port­ing un­der­writers’ grass­roots ef­forts out­side Wash­ing­ton.

In ad­di­tion to the growth of its events prac­tice, Na­tion­al Journ­al con­tin­ues to ag­gress­ively ex­pand its di­git­al busi­ness. The re­launch of Na­tion­al­Journ­ last fall un­der the lead­er­ship of Pres­id­ent and Ed­it­or-in-Chief Tim Grieve res­ul­ted in 63% growth in unique vis­it­ors. The de­liv­ery of in­nov­at­ive di­git­al ad­vert­ising solu­tions has con­trib­uted to 153% di­git­al rev­en­ue growth this year. The brand is gear­ing up for the re­design of its print magazine later this month, while the product and de­vel­op­ment team is fo­cused on build­ing a new di­git­al product pipeline for the second half of this year.

Trump Set To Issue New Travel Ban

Donald Trump is set to issue a new and more focused executive order clarifying the scope of his travel ban, hoping that the order will survive legal challenges. The new order would focus on the same seven countries, "but would only bar entry to those without a visa and who have never entered the United States before. Unlike the original order, people from those countries who already have permanent U.S. residency (green cards) or visas would not face any restrictions." Some lawyers believe the government will now have much stronger standing, though lawyers who challenged the initial order see the same core problems with the forthcoming ban.
