Change Reflects Rise of Multimedia Communication Channels for Publisher of Converting Quarterly

Topeka, KS-based Peterson Publications, Inc., announces a change to its company name and is now known as Peterson Media Group, Inc. (PMG), effective Jan. 1, 2022. The new name reflects changes in the publication business over the last several years and acknowledges the company’s expansion into other areas of multimedia communication, including digital production and advertising.

PMG is the publisher of Converting Quarterly, the official technical journal of the Assn. of International Metalllizers, Coaters & Laminators, in cooperation with AIMCAL.

“The publishing business has changed a great deal since we started the company in 1992,” explains Peterson Media Group President Jeff Peterson. “We have evolved, not only developing focused editorial and advertising content for print magazines but also offering online issues, e-newsletters, websites, webinars and digital advertising to provide impactful information to our audiences in multiple formats.”

In addition to the name change, PMG announces the promotion of Becky Arensdorf to vp-Design and Dianna Brodine to vp-Operations. Both will oversee important aspects of the business and will be instrumental in its continued growth. “Dianna and Becky have been with us through the growth of our company and have been vital to the success we have had,” continues Peterson. “Both promotions are well deserved.”
