TORONTO, July 15 /CNW/ - Ken Whyte, Vice-President and Publisher of Canadian Business, PROFIT, MoneySense and Maclean's magazines, today announced the appointment of Steve Maich as Editor and Associate Publisher, Canadian Business magazine. Maich served in a variety of increasingly senior editorial roles at Maclean's over the last six years. He most recently served as Executive Editor, leading the magazine's coverage of business and economy as well as writing the widely read weekly Econowatch column. Prior to that, he served as Senior Editor and Deputy Managing Editor at the current affairs weekly. "Steve is a remarkably talented journalist with strong instincts for the kinds of stories Canadians want to read in print and digitally," says Whyte. "Highly respected by readers and fellow editors, he is an ideal choice for leading Canadian Business magazine in its 9th decade of publishing." "The team at Canadian Business has established the magazine as one of the country's strongest and most-respected voices on business affairs, and I'm excited to continue building on that strength," says Maich. "Given the state of the global economy, it's never been more important to provide Canadians with timely intelligence and insight into the risks and opportunities at home and abroad." Maich has won three National Magazine Awards for column and feature writing, and co-authored the 2009 book The Ego Boom: Why The World Really Does Revolve Around You. In addition to leading the award-winning editorial team at Canadian Business magazine, Steve will continue to contribute to business coverage at Maclean's. This appointment follows Whyte's own appointment last month as a Vice-President at Rogers Consumer Publishing, at which time his responsibility as Publisher and Editor-in-Chief at Maclean's was expanded to include publisher responsibilities for the three category-leading business magazines produced by Rogers Publishing Limited: Canadian Business, PROFIT, and MoneySense.
