As the CIO and vice president of operations at The Deal LLC-a financial information provider-Lonier is responsible for digital product development, technical operations, audience development, production, manufacturing and distribution. Working closely with The Deal's CEO Kevin Worth, Lonier has led a technology and product transformation, changing The Deal from a traditional diversified b-to-b media company, with publications and related digital products and events, into a high-value enterprise-licensed financial information service provider. To drive this transformation, he assembled new IT and operations teams, built out new technology infrastructure, and replaced The Deal's content management platform, leading to the October 2008 launch of The Deal Pipeline, a proprietary blend of deal news and transaction content that is now part of the daily Web-based and mobile workflow of large law firms, investment banks, fund managers, and advisors.
Before joining The Deal five years ago, Lonier was a technology and operations executive for U.S. News and Thomson Reuters Healthcare. He also worked as a photographer, art director, and production manager at Cincinnati magazine before joining Time Inc., eventually becoming the corporate editorial production manager and then the architect of Time Inc's IMPACT Center, which pioneered the first full-color text and graphics digital prepress, producing more than 14,000 color pages annually, transmitting via private satellite network to 10 domestic and six international printing locations.
