Rogers consumer publishing names Steve Maich as group publisher of business magazines
Steve Maich, heretofore editor in chief of Canadian Business at Rogers Publishing has been appointed immediately to a newly created role as group publisher of all consumer business magazines, including Canadian Business, MoneySense and Profit.
He will continue as editor in chief of Canadian Business but, according to a memo from Ken Whyte, executive vice-president, consumer publishing, will also direct efforts to develop new digital products across several new delivery platforms, including smartphones and tablet computers.

Steve came to Rogers 6 years ago as national business columnist and over the next 5 years served as senior editor, deputy managing editor, and finally, as executive editor of Maclean’s. In July 2009, he moved to Canadian Business as editor, part of a new management team that enacted a very successful redesign and relaunch of the country’s oldest and best-selling business publication.
Also announced and also effective immediately, the deputy publisher of Maclean's, Julie Osborne, is adding the role of senior director, business planning, consumer publishing, responsible for specific (unnamed) project across all brands.
Julie came to Maclean’s in 2006 as Associate Publisher. In 2009 she added Canadian Business, Profit and MoneySense to her responsibilities. Under her leadership, we have seen the brands grow and I look forward to seeing her in action on a larger portfolio [said Whyte].
