Dave Barista named chief editor of Professional Builder
David Barista has assumed the chief editor position at Professional Builder, a Reed Business Information (RBI) publication, with additional responsibility for Custom Builder, Housing Giants, and HousingZone.
Barista joined RBI in 2000, shortly after graduating from Eastern Illinois University, as an editor with Building Design+Construction. He rose quickly through the editorial ranks, most recently serving as BD+C's managing editor.
“Over the last decade, Dave made a great name for himself at BD+C among AEC professionals, product manufacturers, and others in the commercial construction industry, and he'll bring that same intelligence, determination, and editorial skill to the residential market,” said Dean Horowitz, general manager of Reed's Construction Media properties.
