Baltimore Magazine’s new president will be Michael Teitelbaum, a Baltimore native whose second job out of college was at the publication, the CEO announced Wednesday.
Teitelbaum will succeed Richard Basoco, who is retiring at the end of the year after two decades leading the magazine. Teitelbaum’s new title is effective Aug. 28.
“There is a lot of talent at Baltimore magazine, and I am excited to get to know everyone personally,” Teitelbaum said in a release. “There are huge opportunities to expand on a foundation 110 years in the making.“
The University of Maryland graduate started as an account executive at the magazine before co-founding one of the area’s first web development and marketing companies in the ’90s. He has been a managing partner at Right Source Marketing, a content marketing agency, for the past six years.
"We welcome Michael, and will benefit from his experience, skill-set and passion,” magazine CEO and Publisher Stephen Geppi said in a release. “His knowledge of marketing, media, digital publishing and content marketing will help us more fully integrate our award-winning print and online publications and events to better serve our audiences and advertisers."
