Paul Marck named Editor at Alberta Venture

Edmonton, Alberta (Mar. 16th 2010) – After a national search, veteran business journalist Paul Marck has joined the Venture Publishing team as editor of Alberta Venture magazine, effective with the April 2010 issue. Marck, who took the post February 24, replaces outgoing editor Michael McCullough, who is returning to his home-town of Vancouver.

Marck is well-known in the Alberta business community, having spent two decades at the Edmonton Journal, half of that time as a business writer. His writing has also appeared in the Calgary Herald and Financial Post, the Vancouver dailies and for his hometown paper, the Kitchener-Waterloo Record.

"To me, Alberta is an exciting, vibrant province with many stories of success, struggle and triumph yet to be told," says Marck. "Canada's energy independence, a great and growing portion of the country's agriculture and agri-food supply, and opportunities in forestry, manufacturing and higher education depend on Alberta."

Ruth Kelly, publisher and editor-in-chief adds, "We are delighted to have an editor with such depth of knowledge of our Alberta business community join us, particularly as those businesses turn to our publications for advice and direction to help steer them through the economic turnaround."

Published monthly, Alberta Venture is Alberta's most widely read business magazine and discusses the latest trends, issues and intricacies of Alberta's thriving business community. Alberta Venture is known for signature editorial packages such as the Venture 100 + Next 100 (Alberta's top companies by revenue), the Fast Growth 50 (Alberta's fastest growing companies) and Alberta's Best Workplaces.
