Rogers combining B2B and consumer magazines; John Milne out
Rogers has combined its business and consumer magazine divisions, and has let go of two of its veterans in the process.

According to Rogers' Marketing Magazine, Brian Segal, president and CEO of Rogers Publishing, said in an internal email June 29 that the company’s overall strategy is to “work in a more integrated manner to better serve our customers and markets. As a result I am today announcing changes to the publishing company structure that will allow us to take one step closer to making that vision a reality.”

The change means John Milne, senior vice-president of Rogers’ Business and Professional Publishing group with 35 years experience with Rogers Publishing, and Paul Williams, vice-president, brand extension and online development, will be leaving the company July 8, noted Marketing. Publishers will now report to Patrick Renard, the vice-president of finance, added Marketing.

Rogers Publishing also recently sold 15 trade magazines to Vancouver’s Glacier Media.

On Rogers Connect website, 31 business and professional titles are listed including Advisor's Edge, Medical Post, Benefits Canada, CARDOnline, Marketing, and Canadian Grocer.
