Mecklermedia Corporation announced that Paul Bonington has been promoted to senior vice president and group publisher of the Mecklermedia magazine group which includes Internet World, Web Week, and Web Developer publications. He was formerly the publisher of Web Week newspaper and Web Developer magazine. Paul's new responsibilities become effective immediately, and will encompass managing all aspects of editorial and advertising sales for the magazine group.
Bonington began his career at Mecklermedia in 1994 as the publisher of Internet World. In 1995, he was assigned the additional responsibilities of launch publisher for both Web Week and Web Developer, and a year later he took over publisher responsibilities for those titles full-time. Paul's 15 years of sales and management experience in this industry combined with his understanding of Mecklermedia's long-term objectives made him the ideal candidate for this top position, commented Alan Meckler. Under his leadership and with the strong team we have in place, I am confident our titles will continue to flourish as the media community becomes increasingly aware of the unique strengths of our print properties.
Prior to Mecklermedia, Bonington was Director of National Accounts for International Data Group (IDG) where he directed IDG's corporate-wide resources for major accounts including IBM, Digital, ATT, NEC, Texas Instruments, Lotus and Compaq.

Paul began his publishing career as an advertising sales account executive in Ziff-DavisÌ special interest consumer magazine group.
