Garwood Promoted to Managing Editor of Monitor & ABF Journal

Xander Media Group (XMG) announced the promotion of Rita Garwood from editor of the Monitor to the position of managing editor, responsible for both the Monitor and ABF Journal brand print, digital, e-news and online properties, effective immediately.

Garwood will report directly to Jerry Parrotto, president of XMG and executive editor of the Monitor and ABF Journal trade publications and related properties.

Commenting on Garwood’s promotion, Parrotto said, “Rita has exceeded my expectations in just about every aspect of our content delivery systems across all Monitor product lines since her appointment as editor of the Monitor last year. And as we migrate to a more robust ABF Journal website, I fully expect, under Rita’s tutelage, we will realize similar gains in audience activity, participation and engagement in the world of asset-based lending, factoring and other special lending verticals.”

Prior to joining XMG in 2012, Rita was a freelance writer for six years while working in a fast-paced law office as manager and paralegal. She is a magna cum laude graduate of Kutztown University of Pennsylvania with a bachelor of arts in English & professional writing. She was the recipient of a Dean’s Scholarship (Drexel University) and is a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars.

The brand names include: Monitor, Monitor 100, Monitor Mobile, monitordaily, ABF Journal,, ABF Journal Mobile and, recently re-launched, Molloy Associates, an executive search firm affiliate of XMG.
