Publishers Australia Prepares for Strong Year of Growth

29 Sep 2009

The three new directors who were voted on to the board of specialist magazine publishers body, Publishers Australia at their 2009 AGM in Sydney yesterday will add considerable value and experience to an association that is already on a strong upward growth curve.

All three are CEOs and bring a wealth of magazine and digital publishing and business experience to the table. Jeremy Vaughan heads up the Australian operation of international tech publisher, Haymarket Media while Colm O'Brien is CEO of listed international mining media company, Aspermont Limited, headquartered in Perth. And Luna Media CEO, Kylie Ahern heads up a multi award winning science and environmental publishing group, and has
previously held management positions at FPC and ACP.

Current Chairman, and returning board member, Geoff Hird of Westwick-Farrow Media commented "This is an exciting time for Publishers Australia. We had a record attendance at the AGM, more nominees than positions vacant, all of exceptional quality, and we had a record attendance at the lunch event following. The three new board members will bring knowledge, experience and expertise to the team, and am sure will show the same commitment and vigour as the continuing and returning directors, and our very proactive CEO, Alan Sarkissian."

Publishers Australia continues to grow in member numbers, market profile and event numbers. They recently held an inaugural lunch meeting in Perth to follow on from regular events already being held in Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney. New director Colm O'Brien will play an active role in establishing regular meetings for the new Perth chapter.

"Targeted, specialist magazines and digital media continue to deliver much needed ROI for marketers in tough economic times, and Publishers Australia members are at the forefront of this sector." Hird added.

At the luncheon, attended by 140 publishers and associates, Hird also announced a range of new initiatives and projects that Publishers Australia will be involved in over the next 12 months including the inaugural Publishers Australia Publishing Summit, a Thought Leadership breakfast series and a broader range of training workshops.
