TriplePundit will continue to operate independently, under the leadership of Founder and Publisher, Nick Aster, and Editor in Chief, Jen Boynton.
“TriplePundit has a reputation for editorial excellence and we couldn’t be happier to welcome it to our network at 3BL Media,” said Greg Schneider, co-founder and CEO of 3BL Media. “We are eager to take advantage of Nick and Jen’s deep knowledge of CSR and the digital media landscape throughout the organization.”
