Entrepreneur Media Inc.announces the reorganization of its editorial department as part of its strategy to combine the company’s print and online content development teams. Editorial and creative staff will now be fully cross-functional -developing content and design for both online and print products.
Along with Charlotte Jensen, newly appointed executive editor, two new team members will help drive the content development process. Mike Werling will be managing editor responsible for day-to-day content operations for both the magazine and website. Megan Roy will oversee the print and online art and production process as design director.
Bringing over 12 of years of publishing experience to Entrepreneur,award-winning columnist Werling comes most recently from Red Ink, where as a freelance writer he contributed to financial services, healthcare and luxury accommodation publications. Megan Roy is a 2007 ASBPE design award winner from WiesnerMedia. A Boston University grad, Roy’s breadth of experience includes art direction, illustration and photography for both
print and the web.
All three will work under the direction of VP/editor-in-chief Amy Cosper to design an updated look, feel and focus for the small business market leader. The first major unveiling will be the redesign of Entrepreneur magazine beginning with the January 2009 issue that features the highly anticipated Franchise 500(R).
“Entrepreneur has built an incredible presence over 31 years,” says Cosper. “But the only way for us to keep raising the bar is to evolve. We have to be one step ahead of entrepreneurs’ challenges and desires and then arm them with tools that help them get the job done. In this ever-changing era in media, we need to fully leverage our talents in unconventional ways in order to do that — and to best serve our audience.”
“We’re making strategic changes as a company to be more effective, more efficient, and more exhaustive in our efforts to serve our readers, advertisers and partners than ever before,” says Neil Perlman,president ,COO of Entrepreneur. “In order to fulfill the growth plan we have in mind, this is a logical step forward.”
