Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) January 07, 2014
VerticalScope Inc. is expanding its powersports editorial capabilities with the addition of experienced powersports industry professional Sean Alexander. This move marks a continuation of the rapid growth the company has experienced in recent years and is designed to strengthen its ability to produce valuable and relevant content across numerous segments of the vertical.
VerticalScope’s CEO, Rob Laidlaw, said “The editorial division’s recent growth and diversification have created the opportunity to employ dedicated Editorial Directors for each of our verticals.” Laidlaw added: “This move will allow current VerticalScope Editorial Director Joe Magro to focus on new acquisitions in the Outdoors and Pets verticals, while also maintaining corporate oversight of the Powersports and Automotive editorial divisions.”
Alexander is assuming the role of Editorial Director for VerticalScope’s segment-leading powersports content sites, including: Motorcycle.com, ATV.com, Off-Road.com, PersonalWatercraft.com, Snowmobile.com and DirtBikes.com. He joins the company following successful stints as the publisher of Motorcycle.Com (acquired by VerticalScope in 2006) and most recently as the Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. Account Manager at Freeman/McCue Public Relations.
“As a lifelong powersports enthusiast, I am amazed at the selection of properties that are now operated by VerticalScope. It acquired Motorcycle.com shortly after I left in 2006 and have done an admirable job of growing their editorial capabilities since then. At the same time, they have continued to build and/or acquire an amazing selection of additional sites and publications throughout the powersports vertical. It is truly an honor to join such an accomplished publisher and I truly appreciate the opportunity to dive back into this dynamic segment of the industry.”
VerticalScope’s Powersports portfolio includes over 160 publications and online communities.
