Ziff Davis Strengthens its Reseller Channel Editorial Team

I think one of the leading voice for resellers is CMP Media’s VarBusiness which has a print magazine and online web site.
However, Ziff Davis recently announced that its The Channel Insider is building a strong team of veteran channel and technology journalists.
Ziff Davis Internet has named Elliot Markowitz as Editor-at Large of The Channel Insider. Markowitz is currently Editorial Director of Ziff Davis Internet’s eSeminar business. Serving under executive Editor Matthew Rothenberg, Elliot, in his expanded role will help guide the direction and content of the site as well as write a weekly column on the most pressing channel topics.

Markowitz also spent 11 years with CMP Media’s award-winning weekly newspaper Computer Reseller News (CRN), where he held many key editorial positions including Editor.
In addition, Pedro Pereria joins The Channel Insider as contributing editor covering the major trends and issues facing the reseller and distribution communities. Pereira brings to The Channel Insider more than 16 years of writing and editing experience. Pereira is a veteran channel reporter, having worked for CRN for seven years, the last two as news editor and channel columnist.
