Summit Publishing Company has hired packaging journalist Anne Marie Mohan to join the Packaging World editorial team. Packaging World is a monthly business publication for packaging users and is the Chicago-based publisher's flagship magazine. Mohan joins the staff as Senior Editor.
A Chicago native, Mohan attended Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. After graduating, she worked briefly as a staff reporter with the Ottawa Daily Times newspaper in Ottawa, IL, covering the school beat. Mohan's first foray into the business-to-business trade press was with JKL, Inc., a former Lake Forest, IL-based publisher of a monthly trade magazine, U.S. Glass, Metal & Glazing, as well as the annual Architect's Guide to Glass, Metal & Glazing. From there she moved to Innes Publishing, Libertyville, IL, as the editor of Instant & Small Commercial Printer and In-Plant Printer.
Since 2000, Mohan has been a senior editor at Reed Business Information's Packaging Digest, where she specialized in covering trends in package manufacturing, smart and active packaging, RFID, and sustainability, among other topics.
Packaging World VP/Editor, Pat Reynolds, shares his enthusiasm. "We're thrilled that Anne Marie is a member of the Packaging World team.
