It’s been 21 months since the closure of Breaking News, and Factal is poised to launch 24/7 with a freshly-hired team.
With newsrooms in Seattle and London, our editorial launch team includes Rebecca Bratek, Thomas Brew, Sarah Burke, Nick Parker, Jillian Stampher, Lucy Swinnen, Joe Veyera and David Wyllie. They come to Factal from NBC News, BBC News and CBS News, to name a few.
Ryan Ockuly heads up sales at Factal. Most recently, he worked as the director of national sales at Alertus Technologies, an emergency notification company.
Carson Baker joins Factal’s technology team, working on the mobile app. Like many at Factal, Carson once worked for Breaking News.
Our editors are currently providing live news coverage 12+ hours each day and are gearing up for our full 24/7 launch later this month. If you’re a corporate security or emergency management team that would like to join Factal’s ongoing trial, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Factal was created by the founders of Breaking News. Through a combination of technology and experienced journalists, we accelerate companies’ response times to global incidents that pose an immediate risk to their people or business operations.
