New York, NY – Summit Business Media President Andrew Goodenough added CEO to his title on July 30, replacing William Reilly, who will continue as chairman of the board of the publishing and events company.
Goodenough joined Summit as president last Fall and will now handle the day-to-day operations of the company.
“My plan was to drive the initial growth of the business for several years as CEO, and then step back to the chairman role,” Reilly said. “I am delighted to be able to report that Summit, in less than two years, is off to a great start and has taken its place as a major B-to-B media company with more than 26 magazine titles and 100 live events.”
Summit was formed in 2006 by Wind Point Partners through its acquisitions of Highline Media and Pfingsten Publishing. The company has an events program tied to its various magazine titles in the art, mining, insurance and other industries. Its portfolio includes the Artexpo events in New York and Las Vegas, DÉCOR Expo, seven conferences for insurance executives and the three Hard Assets Investment conferences for the mining industry.
Goodenough launched Highline Media in 2003 and is a former president of USB Corporation and Thomson Banking Publishing/Conferences Group.
