The 2015 NMAF Award for Outstanding Achievement goes to Michael Fox
For four decades Fox has been a trailblazer in the Canadian magazine industry. Fox joined Maclean-Hunter in 1974 as a news editor at the Financial Post, helped take the Financial Post from a weekly to a daily in 1988, and established Rogers’ French-language consumer marketing group—a company where he eventually became vp of publishing.
“I can't think of anyone else who has so seamlessly practiced the art of publishing as vocation, avocation, mentor and volunteer," Paul Jones, publisher and former recipient of the Foundation Award said. "Indeed, Michael's passion for magazines has had a multiplying effect, touching an incalculable number of people who've worked alongside him and benefited from his determined pursuit of industry excellence. He has served in mentoring and volunteer leadership roles with Circulation Management Association of Canada, Alliance for Audited Media and the Direct Marketing Association of Canada. As an instructor at Magazines Canada's School for Circulation and Publishing, Michael has helped nurture the continued professional evolution of publishers across Canada, demonstrating with a rare combination of business acumen and infectious generosity what NMAF president Joyce Byrne called "a passionate dedication to the welfare of the industry and the development of our next generation."
The NMAF considers this award to be its highest individual honour. Fox will be presented with award at the 38th annual National Magazine Awards gala on June 5 at the Arcadian Court in Toronto.
Nominees for the NMA awards will be announced on May 4, the same day tickets go on sale.
