Law Bulletin Media announced today that it has appointed Peter V. Mierzwa as president, effective immediately.
Mierzwa becomes the 10th president in the company’s 166-year history, following Mike Kramer, who passed away in December.
Law Bulletin Media, the publisher of the Daily Law Bulletin, is a privately held, Chicago-based information and services company, delivering solutions and critical data to legal and business professionals.
Mierzwa earned his J.D. from the DePaul University College of Law and most recently served as group vice president of Law Bulletin Media’s Legal Information Group with divisional oversight of Lawyerport, Jury Verdict Reporter, Sullivan’s Law Directory and Law Bulletin Seminars. He joined the company in 2000, taking on increasing responsibilities and contributions across product development, sales, marketing, finance, IT and company management.
“Peter has a strong track record in identifying opportunities, initiating and leading change, and driving results amid a challenging digital landscape,” said Law Bulletin Media Co-Chairman and CEO Sandy Macfarland. “Peter is the right person to lead our talented management team and position us to continue providing valuable solutions for a rapidly changing legal marketplace.”
Before joining Law Bulletin Media, Mierzwa held several key positions at Thomson West (now Thomson Reuters), including product development and management of digital and print products for seven Midwest states. Mierzwa is a licensed Illinois attorney and has held leadership positions in The Chicago Bar Association and the Illinois State Bar Association.
“I am honored and energized by the opportunity to assume leadership of this iconic company full of talented people doing meaningful work for the legal community,” Mierzwa said. “I am committed to fully engaging with our stakeholders, including lawyers, judges and all legal professionals, to understand their evolving needs and deliver solutions to improve their practices and businesses.”
