Terry Sellwood retiring from Cottage Life Media; Penny Caldwell named publisher, Michelle Kelly, editor

[This post has been updated] Terry Sellwood, who has been for many years a lynchpin in many of the most important magazine organizations in Canada, including being president of the National Magazine Awards Foundation and chair of Magazines Canada, is retiring. 

He is currently president and chief operating officer of Cottage Life Media, one of the country's most important and innovative independent publishers.

[Update: Penny Caldwell, the editor of Cottage Life magazine has been appointed publisher and Michelle Kelly, current executive editor, assumes the role of editor.] 

His career started in circulation (about which he became expert) and now he is concluding a run of 15 years working in increasingly important roles at Cottage Life (now a division of Blue Ant Media). Come the end of August, he will be making his 10th trip to the Nevada desert and the Burning Man festival  (which he adores, not just as a guitar player). Only this time he won't be coming back to work. 

[Press release.]
