Vocativ, the media startup launched in 2013 charged with scouring the “deep Web” for story ideas, announced Wednesday a reorganization of its executive ranks ahead of renewed investment in the company.
Scott Cohen, the current CEO of Vocativ, will step down to take on a role at a company owned by Mati Kochavi, the founder of Vocativ, according to a staff memo to employees from Kochavi.
