This person can speak with command to experts and leaders across many different fields and can lead the editorial execution of any event, juggling multiple responsibilities with many players.

  • Overseeing the editorial responsibilities of AtlanticLIVE’s annual health-related summits including, Pulse Summit on Health Care and People v. Cancer;

  • Working with colleagues across the team to help make event management and execution as seamless as possible.

Across Atlantic Media, generally, the firm looks for two “pillar gifts” in you, and everyone else.  In all of us, these are more aspirational than actual, but they are central in our intentions:

  1. Force of Intellect – a discipline and rigor of thought as manifested, often, in remarkable academic performance and, later, success in a professional environment.
  2. Spirit of Generosity – a natural disposition towards service and selfless conduct.
