I am happy to announce that Mike O’Brien has joined Multichannel Merchant as Senior Editor, and will head up our Operations and Fulfillment team. Please reach out to Mike with your O+F tips and article ideas, and let him know if you are interested in contributing O+F content to MultichannelMerchant.com.
Mike and I go way back – he was a reporter at The Hour (Norwalk, CT) when I joined that newspaper in 1995 (when I had a quarter of a head of hair), and our paths crossed again in 2000, when we both worked for subsidiaries of Primedia.
Mike has worked in journalism, marketing and public relations for more than 25 years. Most recently he was a senior account executive for Marx Communications, a boutique PR firm specializing in clients working in marketing and advertising services.
Other past work includes stints as a media relations consultant for a startup nonprofit concert promoter, a marketing communications specialist for a software firm, a research analyst covering the corporate training market and a daily newspaper reporter covering a variety of beats.
Mike holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Bridgeport, is active in his church community and lives in Stratford, CT with his wife and son.
