Adopting a Solutions-Focused Matrix Structure

To accelerate our transformation into a world-class provider of market-based information solutions, we recently revamped our corporate structure.
The new matrix structure organizes the company by centers of excellence – content, interactive, events, business intelligence, custom marketing solutions and audience development – across its markets. This enables our construction and trucking teams to marry their market knowledge with the centers of excellence core competencies when identifying and meeting customers’ needs. It also enables the centers of excellence to create cross-functional information solutions that are scalable to the company’s existing and future markets.
“As the media and information landscape continues to change, it’s our goal to be at the forefront of innovation in the markets we serve,” says Brent Reilly, who was recently promoted to Randall-Reilly president. “This new structure will help us continually develop new and measurable ways for our customers to overcome their marketing challenges, while communicating effectively with their customers across multiple platforms.”
As part of the new structure, Brent Reilly’s role as president will focus on sales and operations for the company’s trucking, construction and business intelligence divisions and on strategic planning and implementation. His father, Mike Reilly, will remain as chairman and CEO and will continue to be responsible for lender and customer relationships.
Shane Elmore, formerly chief financial officer, will assume a new role as chief process officer, working with Brent Reilly and the company’s construction and trucking leadership to drive increased collaboration and integration across centers of excellence.
In his new role as chief administration officer, David Wright, formerly chief operations officer, will provide strategic and operational leadership to the company’s financial and administrative functions to ensure the legal and financial viability of the organization. Wright will assess organizational performance against annual goals and long-term strategy and will serve as the financial voice of the company.
“Our objective with these promotions is to execute our primary corporate strategy: To deliver customer-driven solutions,” says Mike Reilly. “That will be the key that will drive our company’s future growth and success.”
