New Blog Chairman

By Maureen Alley

I am excited to join ASBPE as the new blog chairman – taking over for Tonie Auer. Tonie has driven this blog to where it is today. She has recruited industry heavy-hitters to write on this space, and posted her own insights into the B2B world that are so valuable.

Staying up-to-date and current in the ever-changing world we live and work in is imperative for success. I hope to continue that here on ASBPE’s blog, and provide the content that helps you learn and stay ahead of the curves needed to do your jobs better.

A little background on me: I have been in the B2B magazine publishing space since 2005, starting out as assistant editor for Residential Design & Build magazine (property of Cygnus Business Media). I moved up the ladder by learning new technologies, being a sponge, and keeping my nose to the grindstone. I left RD&B in 2009 as managing editor to accept a position as managing editor for Website Magazine. Sad to leave the RD&B group, but I knew WM would provide me with the opportunity to learn more about the Web industry than I could on my own.

In November, I resigned from Website Magazine to move back to Wisconsin. Since the move, I have been freelance editing and writing for various B2B magazines, the local paper, and am now editor for Woodland Management magazine.

I have a strong passion in good, quality content, the B2B magazine industry, and relying on each other to learn new ways of our jobs.
