Source Interlink Media Announces New Senior Vice President of Marine Group
Source Interlink Media, parent company of Power & Motoryacht and SAIL magazines, recently announced the appointment of publishing veteran Doug Evans to succeed Dennis O’Neill as senior vice president of its marine group. Evans will now oversee both the marine and the performance automotive groups and will report to Steve Parr, CEO of Source Interlink Media.
Evans joins Power & Motoryacht and SAIL with a wealth of publishing experience. He began his career in the media department of Young and Rubicam before moving into publishing in the early 1980’s. He has held positions at Petersen Publishing Company, Condé Nast, Hachette Filipacchi, Primedia, Inc., and Source Interlink Media, giving him 27 years of experience in the industry.
“Having spent the better part of my career on over 25 enthusiast titles at Source Interlink Media, I am delighted to take the helm of the marine group,” Evans says.
In addition to being a publishing industry veteran, Evans is a lifelong boater. He grew up on his father’s 40-footer, and for several years while working in Manhattan lived on his own 51-foot Sea Ranger trawler. “I have been a loyal reader of Power & Motoryacht and SAIL for years and am excited to be able to lend my experience to both,” he says. “The marine industry has specific needs, and we look forward to offering a new level of resources from the leading magazines in the power and sailing market to address those needs.”
