Active Interest Media has named Gary Reich editor-in-chief of Soundings Trade Only. Reich replaces Jeff Moser, who assumes the editor-in-chief position at sister magazine PassageMaker.
“It speaks volumes about the breadth and depth of our bench at our marine titles that the ideal candidate to fill the Trade Only role would come from within,” said Gary DeSanctis, president of the AIM Marine Group. “Having worked with Gary for several years, I know that his passion and knowledge for the marine industry will keep STO as the leading B2B publication covering the business of boating and push the title to new heights.”
Most recently, Reich split his time between two Active Interest Media titles as managing editor of Anglers Journal and senior editor of Soundings. (Soundings Trade Only, Anglers Journal and PassageMaker are part of the AIM Marine Group.)
“Gary is one of the saltiest people I have the pleasure of knowing, with a resumé as interesting as he is,” Moser said. “He’s done stints as a rigger at a full-service chandlery and run wholesale units for marine retailers, was a service manager on the dealer side and was managing editor at Waterway Guide and then a full-time freelance writer/editor before coming to Active Interest Media five years ago. He’s a natural fit for the role.”
