Senior staff shake-up at Canadian Grocer
Canadian Grocer, Rogers Publishing Inc.’s oldest trade magazine, has seen three of its senior staff members depart this year. Publisher Karen James, a Rogers/Maclean Hunter executive for the last 20 years, retired her post in June; associate publisher Kevin Smith, a Canadian Grocer employee since 1984, was let go as part of the April layoffs at Rogers; and longtime editor Jerry Tutunjian is currently on leave.

A one-time, full-page, four-colour ad in Canadian Grocer goes for $8,300.
Filling in temporarily as publisher is Janet Smith, executive publisher for the retail services group at Rogers. The company has posted the position on its careers site and Workopolis. Nancy Kwon, the magazine’s managing editor, is currently in-charge of day-to-day editorial operations.

Founded by J.B. Maclean in 1886, Canadian Grocer is today issued 10 times a year, with a circulation around 18,000.
