We continue our blog interview series with Andrew Rosenbaum, an important figure in the Cypriot journalism.
Hi Andrew! Thank you for accepting to do this interview. First things first, let us know more about yourself!
I am currently the Business Editor and publisher at the Cyprus Mail newspaper, the largest news website and newspaper on the island ( cyprus-mail.com )
I was born in New York, but have spent more than thirty years in Europe – I speak French, Dutch, German, Italian and Russian. I’ve been working as a journalist and copywriter in France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands and Cyprus. As a journalist, I’ve worked for the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, The Telegraph, Time magazine and many other more specialised publications in finance and technology. I’m an expert at targeting copy to specific audiences, and in making complex ideas understandable to a broad readership.
2.What are you working on right now?
Currently, I manage the Business Portal of the Cyprus Mail. I launched the portal and have built it up into the go-to website for Cyprus business, with more than 50,000 regular viewers. I’ve also done a number of specialised web projects on Cyprus business. These are also getting significant advertising support.
3.We are living hard times nowadays. Did the pandemic affect your work in any way? How?
The pandemic has made it impossible to hold live events, and thus our virtual work has had to compete hard with other sites. But we are winning the numbers game, with 18 million website views per month.
4.What does a normal work day look like to you?
I start at 6 a.m. and work online and in live meetings until about 19:00.
5.What project did you take part at that you are most proud of?
The creation, launch and management of our Cyprus in the 4th Industrial Revolution series, which has highlighted the robust business community here, has been both a critical and commercial success.
6. What is the most challenging part regarding your career?
Working at several startups over the years, and taking them from scratch to success.
7.What are your future plans regarding your career?
I plan to continue creating business projects and making them successful. I am entirely results and deadline driven.
