Matthew Yorke, SourceMedia’s CMO was recognized for his work in overhauling the company’s entire marketing strategy to better leverage its base of 2 million subscribers and for his work on SourceCode, which taps directly into SourceMedia’s proprietary, first-party audience data to engineer integrated marketing solutions.
Paul Vogel, SouceMedia’s Vice President, Content Operations was honored for his significant contributions and leadership in the transformation of the company’s content organization.

Vogel also helped establish the SourceMedia Content Studio, a unit tasked with fulfilling custom and native content for clients, including art direction, and led an initiative to grow SourceMedia’s referral network both organically and through strategic partnerships.
Bonnie McGeer and Rebecca Sausner were honored at Folio:’s Top Women in Media Luncheon in New York City in June.

She chairs the brand’s Most Powerful Women in Banking committee, which itself includes a mentorship program for women in financial services.
