NCM’s record digital media growth (revenue and portfolio), and emerging opportunities in content marketing and data/development, prompted the new staff structure and promotions.

- Audience Development — A cornerstone of NCM since its inception five years ago, this department builds and connects NCM’s communities of buyers and sellers, and handles subscription fulfillment, list rental, and controlled circulation audits.
- Digital Media — This NCM department manages 23 websites, 45 e-newsletters, dozens of social media accounts and myriad multimedia projects.
As NCM’S new Digital Media Manager, Joelle will report directly to Bethany. Joelle joined NCM in 2013, and has excelled in developing an editorial voice and producing engaging content for NCM’s online properties. Since advancing to senior digital media content producer last year, Joelle has mentored her NCM colleagues to several industry awards.
