I want to share the exciting news that Scott Sullivan has been named Chief Technology Officer for Tribune Interactive, overseeing the TI engineering group across all of Tribune. Scott will be traveling back and forth between LA and Chicago, but will maintain his role here at The Times—and specifically latimes.com. Kamran Izadpanah, the head of engineering for our interactive group, will be filling in for Scott as needed, but Scott will continue to be an integral part of our team here. Scott’s knowledge has been crucial to the growth we’ve seen on our Web site over the last year and his new role is a testament to the fantastic team Scott has built and the great work they are doing.
Please join me in congratulating Scott.
