About us

In 2011, David Schrieberg, a Pulitzer and George Polk prizewinning journalist, digital media executive and entrepreneur saw financial companies drowning in information, wasting time sifting through repetitive and often unreliable sources to uncover critical business intelligence. His idea: Create a platform and process, run by subject-expert journalists, to gather and deliver essential news to guide business decisions.

 

Search pioneer Gerry Campbell, ex-president of Thomson Reuters Search & Content Technologies, joined as co-founder and Chairman. Assembling a top-flight international team, they recruited dozens of journalists adept at efficiently filtering and curating information. With growing success, VitalBriefing expanded into dozens of industries and public institutions, and added branded content marketing and thought leadership stories.
