Greentech Media Inc., the industry-leading online media company covering green technology news and analysis today announced that it has hired John Keough, a former Group Vice President at CMP as their new Vice President of Sales. While at CMP, Keough most recently managed the full Light Reading Communications Group portfolio of Websites and research products as well as the company's live and online events.

According to Keough, "Greentech Media offers the booming greentech market the right mix of information products, including online media, live events and research. It's a business model I'm very familiar with as I helped create one similar with Light Reading in the telecom market. I look forward to capitalizing on the interest in the greentech category and taking the business to the next level at an important stage of their growth cycle."
