Chicago, IL (February 10, 2015) – Guerrero Howe Custom Media, a leading business-to-business custom-media company that produces six industry-leading magazines and events that cater to connecting powerful business leaders, has announced the sale of Green Building & Design (gb&d) along with the departure of the company’s cofounder.
These changes are representative of a larger initiative by the company’s CEO, Pedro Guerrero, to focus growth efforts on the most promising verticals. “The departure of our co-owner and the sale of gb&d was a decision that was made after careful consideration,” Guerrero said. “After months of deliberation, we realized that GH was in need of one clear vision. In the best interest of the company, we decided that it was time to start a new chapter for the business and to consolidate ownership of the company.” The change in ownership and the sale of gb&d was finalized at the end of 2014.
“This is a very exciting time for GH,” Guerrero says. “We now have one vision and a clear strategy for growth, and it is coming at the right time. We saw more than 20 percent growth in 2014 and, now that the economy is showing stronger vital signs, 2015 should be another great year.”
One of the company’s main initiatives this year is the The Alumni Society, an organization for Latino business executives who have graduated from top American universities. The Alumni Society is organized by Hispanic Executive magazine, one of GH’s magazines, and was formed to help corporations identify top talent and combat the challenge that they continue to face, diversity in the workplace, as well as help them understand the value of having a diverse work environment. The Alumni Society will host an annual Leadership Summit in NYC and release an annual magazine.
GH also launched two new magazines this year, Sync and Modern Counsel. Sync highlights technology executives and examines the big ideas changing the modern enterprises. Modern Counsel showcases the most influential in-house counsel and offers insight into legal leaders’ professional lives by telling their stories. Both magazines are quarterly, and subscriptions are free to professionals in each of their respective industries.
