Suzanna Frank, Lee vice president of audience, said Riley will be based at the corporate headquarters in Davenport and will have responsibility for developing companywide resources and programs to grow Lee's digital and print audiences and subscription revenues.

"Brett brings the right combination of abilities in all of the many aspects of print circulation, as well as experience in growing digital audiences, and we're delighted he is joining our corporate team," she said. "Our research has consistently demonstrated that Lee markets have huge and stable audiences across our many print and digital news platforms, and we continue to keep audience a top priority for the company."

In 2011, The Times' BusINess magazine of named him to its 20 Under 40 list of achievers. He and his wife, Andrea, have three children.
