Times promotes members of its business team

The St. Petersburg Times has promoted members of its business team to help build its advertising share in the competitive Tampa Bay media market.

Eric Myers, 38, is the Times' new advertising director. The Tampa native joined the Times 10 years ago and has risen steadily through its advertising ranks.

Bruce Faulmann, who joined the Times 11 months ago, becomes the company's new vice president of sales and marketing and was named to the Times' board of directors.

For much of the past year, Faulmann, 47, has been publisher of Florida Trend, a monthly business magazine owned by the Times Publishing Co., which also owns the St. Petersburg Times. Until last year, Faulmann was vice president of advertising and sales at the Tampa Tribune.

Andy Corty, 57, will replace Faulmann as Florida Trend publisher. He'll retain his duties as the Times' corporate secretary. Corty was Trend's first publisher after the Times bought the magazine in 1980. Part of his duties include overseeing the company's weekly Tampa Bay Newspapers and the Senior Living Guides.

Paul Tash, editor, chairman and CEO, announced the moves Monday. Tash has been reorganizing the Times' executive team in response to the weak advertising climate that's affecting the newspaper industry as a whole.

  3. Hackers hide cyberattacks in social media posts


    SAN FRANCISCO — It took only one attempt for Russian hackers to make their way into the computer of a Pentagon official. But the attack didn't come through an email or a file buried within a seemingly innocuous document.

While last year's hacking of senior Democratic Party officials raised awareness of the damage caused if just a handful of employees click on the wrong emails, few people realize that a message on Twitter or Facebook could give an attacker similar access to their system.
