Rick Stamberger // President and CEO // SmartBrief


Ernesto is back! Stopping back unexpectedly for a break from paternity leave, we have three hosts on the show today since Stephanie Cerulo is still with us as our guest host. Rick Stamberger, the CEO of SmartBrief joins us to talk about the 200 different publications his company produces for over 200 trade assocations and 6.6 million subscibers. In business since the early days of email, SmartBrief employs 170 editors, writers, and tech staff who comb over 10,000 different media outlets to bring relevant news for your assocation. The staff of many nonprofits are focused on mission-driven activities and don’t have the time or ability to focus on sending throughtful, researched news pieces when they matter and SmartBrief makes that possible. If you work for a nonprofit or create a product or service that is essential to those in that industry, this episode could start some wheels turning and potentially save you lots of time, money, and energy to focus on your real work.

Rick Stamberger is president and CEO of SmartBrief, which he co-founded with Dan O’Brien and Tom Wheeler. He has spent much of his career at the intersection of business, public policy and the not-for-profit sector. Serving nearly 6 million senior executives, thought leaders and industry professionals, SmartBrief is the leading digital media publisher of targeted business news. By combining technology and editorial expertise, SmartBrief filters thousands of sources daily to deliver the most relevant industry news in partnership with leading trade associations, professional societies, nonprofits and corporate entities.
