Vertical Ascent, LLC is launching a new statewide business magazine called New Mexico Business Magazine. The new magazine is aimed at CEOs, high level business executives, managers, owners of small businesses and others in the business community. The magazine will focus on issues important to New Mexico's growing business community.
New Mexico Business Magazine replaces the New Mexico Business Journal which ceased operations earlier this year. While not related to the New Mexico Business Journal, the magazine is published by Doug Stine who was editor-in-chief for the Business Journal. Mr. Stine has also taken over the subscriber list of the Business Journal.
The magazine has wide community support, including financial backing and an editorial board that includes community leaders such as Gary Tonjes, President of Albuquerque Economic Development (AED), Alex Romero, president of the Hispano Chamber of Commerce, Wayne Unze, Sr. Vice President of NAI The Vaughan Company and Phil Messuri of the Financial Network and president of the Financial Planning Association. It also has support from the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce and the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce.
The initial print run will be 12,000 copies, nearly twice that of the New Mexico Business Weekly. While more than half of the circulation will be in the greater Albuquerque area, the magazine will be mailed to subscribers state-wide as well as distributed to chambers of commerce, professional associations and networking events. It will also be available in major bookstores and newsstands.
