Dreams do come true. For going on two decades, I’ve desired to create a publication catering to the South Sound business community, a community which I’ve been a part of since founding Premier Media Group with South Sound Wedding & Event magazine here in 2001.
Over the years, our company has grown. Today, the wedding magazine is in someone else’s hands, and in its place we have four award-winning regional publications: South Sound; 425; 425 Business; and our latest product, South Sound Business.
Getting to this point has been an interesting journey. Every issue of South Sound Business magazine is a tribute to South Sound BIZ magazine, which was started more than 30 years ago as The Business Examiner by longtime friends of mine, Jeff and Jill Rounce. When the Rounces approached me with news of their desire to retire and sell their company, I was more than intrigued. We got the deal done, and now I get to fulfill my dream.
What does that dream look like moving forward? I envision a magazine that builds upon the Rounces’ legacy of excellence and utilizes live events and digital media to report on the growing South Sound business climate. We want to be part of the continued success of the South Sound business community and showcase that community by contributing a breath of fresh air.
Personally, I’d like to thank you for your partnerships in this endeavor and encourage you to share how you think South Sound Business can help you or your company!
