LONDON, England – February 3, 2016 — Recognizing the enormous growth potential for its services outside its existing core markets, Business Wire today announced that Dick Bromley has been promoted to senior vice president, international business development.
In his new role, Bromley will seek to identify promising new markets for potential expansion, building upon Business Wire’s current network of 32 offices worldwide. Most recently, Bromley served as group vice president, whose portfolio extended to Sydney and Tokyo. Based in London, Bromley will report to Gregg Castano, Business Wire’s president.
Since joining Business Wire in 2001 as UK sales manager, Bromley has played a pivotal role in growing Business Wire’s global footprint. The company has successful operations in London, Paris and Frankfurt and is sanctioned as a regulatory disclosure service in multiple European jurisdictions.
Bromley has enjoyed sales success on both sides of the Atlantic. He spent three years in San Francisco, heading up Business Wire’s sales activities in Northern California and the Pacific Northwest, before returning to London in March 2015.
“Dick is in the enviable position of evaluating many exciting opportunities currently under consideration,” said Cathy Baron Tamraz, Business Wire’s CEO, in making today’s announcement. “Business Wire has tremendous brand equity throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East. We already have a strong client base in these markets that are using Business Wire to reach consumers, investors and potential business partners on a global scale. Our challenge is to determine which of the many opportunities available we should focus on next.”
“I’ve worked with Dick for nearly 15 years, during which time he has always been successful in whatever role he’s been given,” added Castano. “He represents Business Wire with complete professionalism, genuine enthusiasm and utmost integrity and because of those traits I have every confidence that he will exceed expectations in his new role.”
