As society becomes untethered from print-based information and advertising models, publishers continue through a wrenching transformation. The excitement and angst of the industry was felt throughout the Publishing Business Conference and Expo at the New York City Marriott Marquis earlier this week.

The event included an “A-list” of speakers, over 70 innovative technology vendor and service provider exhibitors, and hundreds of attendees from across the magazine, book and media industry.

Dwell Media President Michela O'Connor Abrams announced today the appointment of Amanda Dameron as Editor-in-Chief across all Dwell Media platforms, and Alejandro Chavetta as Creative Director, both effective immediately. "As Dwell Media continues to grow and expand its platforms there is no team better suited than Amanda & Alejandro to expand the Dwell voice, aesthetic, and sharp curatorial eye across print, digital, events, and commerce. I believe a strong voice and clear vision for the growth of the Dwell brand is paramount," said Michela O'Connor Abrams.

"Magazine publishing, more than many other fields, has long been a great career for women …,” says Patricia B. Fox, senior vice president, operations, and general manager, Healthy Living Group at Active Interest Media. Fox, along with the other women Publishing Executive selected for its first-annual “Top Women in Magazine Publishing” feature, exemplify the greatness that women have achieved in this industry.
