  • Moving on from Seeking Alpha 22 comments
    Apr 8, 2010 9:38 AM
    I have a personal announcement. After four and a half incredibly rewarding years at Seeking Alpha, I'll be moving to a new position at the end of April. I'm joining an exciting new project out of JVP's Media Studio that is not yet public, but soon will be.

    I'm leaving with a great sense of professional accomplishment for what our relatively small editorial team achieved. We've built nothing less than a new type of media outlet from the ground up, adjusting agilely as we've scaled over the years. Starting from a simple Wordpress blog, we now offer an elegant, robust, comprehensive online service, reaching over three million monthly users who come to SA for what remains a unique product: informed, candid discussion of investing and the broader market.

    During a period when older media companies struggled mightily to keep legacy models viable, we built an entirely new editorial model, based on our conviction that market participants offer a uniquely valuable voice to augment traditional journalism. Thank you most sincerely to our loyal readers and contributors for all of your support and feedback while we developed all aspects of our editorial platform during this time.

    On a personal note, I feel extremely grateful to have worked alongside the amazing people at Seeking Alpha. A special thanks to David for giving me the opportunity to run this show as I saw fit from the beginning. I have no doubt that great things remain in store for Seeking Alpha.

    The extraordinarily talented Eli Hoffmann will take over as Editor in Chief of SA when I leave. I wish my good friend Eli the very best.

    ~ Mick

    Thanks for developing this new form of media! It has kept me informed better than any media of the past and provoked investing thought beyond my wildest dreams.

     

    Best of luck in your new endeavor!

    Mick, great job with what you've done here. I remember with disdain the daily posts you were making on back on Yahoo! Finance some years back, that were merely aggregated one-liner summaries of articles posted by financial bloggers. I'm sure that wasn't what you had in mind for yourself. You've certainly risen from a zero to a hero once you had an opportunity to shine.

    I just wanted to add that Mick has been somewhat modest in this announcement. For what he achieved, see the second part of this:

    Dear Mick:

     

    During your tenure this service has become a respected tool for the investment community. SA has continually advanced its scope and reach. In addition, all the editorial staff deserves credit for listening to what the contributors have suggested and adapted SA accordingly.

     

    Best to you in your future endeavors

    I just saw a class picture from when we were little in a box of stuff my parents brought to me on Pesach.
