NewBay, publisher of Residential Systems, has named Megan A. Dutta editor of Systems Contractor News (SCN), effective immediately. Dutta comes to SCN from Peerless-AV, where she drove the brand’s external communications and thought leadership program. She is the recent recipient of InfoComm’s Young AV Professionals Award.
“In her role at Peerless-AV, Megan had extensive contact with AV integrators and developed a deep understanding of their needs and concerns, as well as those on the manufacturing and distribution side,” said Adam Goldstein, EVP/group publisher of SCN. “We are excited that she is bringing her well-rounded views and boundless energy to Systems Contractor News.”
In addition to her marketing duties at Peerless-AV, Dutta has expanded her role in the industry as a member of the InfoComm Exhibitor Steering Committee, where she has contributed since 2011 and served as chairperson for the 2017 show. She is also a member of the Women of InfoComm Council and a content contributor to Women in Consumer Technology.
“With my significant industry experience, I am excited to bring a fresh viewpoint to SCN,” Dutta said. “The people in this industry are like a large family, and I look forward to bringing them together through magazine, digital, events, and social media.”
Dutta will work with the rest of the SCN editorial team—including editorial director Jeremy Glowacki and senior editor Matt Pruznick—on the continued expansion of this brand.
