NEW YORK – The Associated Press has appointed Tom Januszewski to head the news agency’s business development initiatives globally, a critical new revenue leadership role.
Januszewski will be responsible for driving revenue growth, building out content and service lines, introducing new revenue channels and leading a team focused on new markets.
He will report to Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Daisy Veerasingham in her capacity as chief revenue officer.
“Tom is an outstanding revenue leader with a clear vision of what the future can hold for AP,” said Veerasingham. “His innovative approach and demonstrated track record make him the optimal choice to direct AP’s business development efforts as we look to what’s next.”
“AP’s strong brand and reputation open doors to an incredible set of forward-looking companies in a variety of growing markets,” Januszewski said. “We plan to build on our earlier successes in advertising, content services, corporate and financial markets, fact-checking and verification, and expand into new promising areas. It’s my privilege to work with talented cross-departmental teams at AP and I’m thrilled to take on this broader role.”
Januszewski has held several business development positions since joining AP in 2000, most recently vice president for partnerships. In that role he managed AP’s relationships with technology companies and social media platforms such as Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Twitter and Facebook, driving significant revenue growth from strategic partnerships and new service offerings.
Januszewski holds a law degree from Quinnipiac University School of Law and a Bachelor of Arts from Fairfield University. He lives in New York.
