NEW YORK, NY (August 27, 2019) – SourceMedia, a leading provider of business information, today announced that David Evans has joined the company as Chief Content Officer. Evans was most recently leading the global event content strategy for Forrester.

Most recently, he led the global event content strategy for Forrester, and prior to that he led face-to-face client programming at Gerson Lehrman Group (GLG). He began his career as a business journalist and editor, including roles at Canadian Business, Adweek, Business Week, and Fast Company, and was a Knight Bagehot fellow at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
