Scott Mozarsky is out as president of Bloomberg Law, a position he has held since November 2016. Replacing him as president is Joe Breda, formerly executive vice president of product.

I spoke briefly today with Breda, who informed me of the transition but provided no further details. The news comes just days before a major industry event, the annual conference of the American Association of Law Libraries.

Mozarsky, an attorney, joined Bloomberg BNA in 2014. He was named president in 2016 following the departure of David Perla as president.

Joe Breda

Breda, also a lawyer, joined Bloomberg BNA in 2013 as executive vice president, product. Before joining Bloomberg BNA, he was head of product for Bloomberg Law, where he held earlier positions as developer and R&D manager.

He played a pivotal role in bringing to market the current Bloomberg Law platform, according to his Bloomberg BNA biography. He also led the effort to integrate the majority of Bloomberg BNA’s content collection into Bloomberg Law within six months of the acquisition.

In his recent role as head of product, Breda oversaw the release of enhanced Securities and Tax Practice Centers, new business development tools such as the company hierarchy tool, and continuous improvements in core legal research.

Prior to joining Bloomberg, Breda was an equity partner in a boutique Syracuse, N.Y., law firm where he practiced for nearly 14 years.
