With more than 20 years at CMP, Weitzner took the helm of the company in September 2005 after serving as chief operating officer for three years. Weitzner has spearheaded a new model for business-to-business publishing at CMP Technology, transforming the publisher into a marketing solutions company that serves the entire spectrum of technology -- the builders, sellers and users. In addition to 80 business-to-business publications, CMP Technology hosts 150 face-to-face events and 120 web sites that serve the information needs of 8 million business technology professionals.

Under Weitzner's leadership, CMP acquired MediaLive International's Technology Media Group of events and conferences; Shorecliff Communications and Black Hat Inc. These additions to the company's portfolio established CMP as the strongest technology event platform in the industry. In addition, under Weitzner's direction, CMP launched organic initiatives that include http://www.smallbizresource.com/ -- a comprehensive online information source for small business; the Buyer Connection lead program; http://www.darkreading.com/ -- a security community portal, and a new corporate marketing program.

Weitzner also renamed the company CMP Technology, focusing CMP 100 percent on technology.

"I am deeply honored to be recognized by my industry peers," Weitzner said. "I have a strong commitment to CMP and I could not have achieved any of these awards without the work of the strongest team of professionals in the industry. People who share CMP's goals with me -- to create essential content that meets the information needs of our audiences and to deliver outstanding integrated marketing solutions that meet the business objectives of our customers."
