Anthony Calamaro Appointed Publisher of Federal Computer Week and civic.com

Falls Church, VA – JUNE 6, 2000 – Anthony D. Calamaro has been named publisher of Federal Computer Week and civic.com. A dedicated professional with over 20 years’ experience in high-tech publishing and advertising sales, he now oversees the development and implementation of day-to-day operations for FCW Government Technology Group, Inc.’s federal and state/local IT print publications. In this new capacity, Calamaro will integrate the sales force of Federal Computer Week with that of civic.com, according to Edith Holmes, FCW’s president and chief executive officer.

 

"Tony is the right leader for Federal Computer Week and civic.com in these exciting and challenging times in publishing," Holmes said. "His common touch and knowledge of the complex and changing government market for information technology make him uniquely qualified to lead the sales effort and meet the market’s needs."

Calamaro became associate publisher of Federal Computer Week in 1997. Previously he was national sales director. In these roles, he boosted advertising sales of the 14-year-old publication to record levels, achieving a dominant share of federal ad pages. Widely respected for his people skills, Calamaro has earned the allegiance of FCW’s staff and his customers in the market.

Calamaro came to FCW from CMP where he worked in advertising sales for seven years, the last two as national sales manager for Communications Week. Before that, he served as national marketing manager at what was then Fairchild’s Electronic News. He holds degrees in economics and marketing from Villanova University in Villanova, Pa.

“I am proud to be publisher of the number one book in the federal IT market and of the fastest growing state and local IT publication,” Calamaro said.

An International Data Group company, FCW Government Technology Group, Inc., offers a suite of media products for the government IT community. In print, FCW publishes Federal Computer Week, a magazine providing news, technology and analysis for federal IT professionals; and civic.com, a monthly magazine for state and local IT professionals. FCW.COM, a complete online government IT resource, compliments these print publications by providing daily federal, state and local IT news and emailed headline newsletters. In addition, FCW produces special learning events, including the Government CIO Summit, a semi-annual, by-invitation-only conference for government chief information officers; and the annual GovTech Conference and Exposition, to be held June 20-21, 2000 at the Washington, D.C.
