President & Chief Executive Officer of Access Intelligence
Don has led the strategy and growth of Access Intelligence for over a decade, taking magazine-centric businesses and converting them to an integrated media, web-centric group of market focused product clusters serving the media/marketing, energy/engineering, aerospace, and healthcare markets. His focus has been on providing the best quality information and most effective marketing services to the company’s customers. Don and his team have built the business through countless launches and 18 acquisitions that have been bolted onto and integrated into the Phillips Business Information newsletter and magazine platform that Veronis Suhler Stevenson bought from Tom Phillips in late 2000. In 2010, the integrated, subscription revenue, chemical and energy information business was sold to IHS. Since that time, the company has leveraged its strong balance sheet and robust online market presence in its served markets to create high e-media and event revenue growth. In 2011, AI completed the acquisitions of OR Manager for it’s healthcare division, Red7 Media for the media portion of it’s Communications Group, and Cynopsis for the cable division of it’s Communications Group. Before joining Access Intelligence, Don was at Miller Freeman, a subsidiary of United Business Media, for 23 years and he was named CEO in 1997. His ascendance through the company included management of conferences, magazines, and high-value information businesses. Don launched and grew Miller Freeman’s presence in the high-tech publishing sector, culminating with the acquisition of CMP Media in 1999. Under his leadership, Blenheim USA’s trade shows were acquired by Miller Freeman, which then became the largest trade show producer in the United States. Don is a frequent speaker at events held in conjunction with Folio Magazine; American Business Media, where he is chairman of their government relations committee; Society of Independent Show Organizers, where he is a past chairman, and Specialized Information Publishers Association. He also serves as vice chairman of the Center for Exhibition Industry Research, as well as on the Board of F + W Media, one of the largest independent special interest consumer book, web, and magazine publishers.
