Newman Named to Folio 40

Bob Newman, CD at Reader's Digest, has been named to the 2012 FOLIO: 40, the publication's annual list of the industry's most innovative and distinguished professionals. The list represents every facet of magazine publishing, from every corner of the industry. Not reserved exclusively for seasoned executives, "The 40" honors individuals from the corner office to the corner cubicle, where new ideas drive meaningful change.

Newman was brought on board with the formidable task of shattering RD's stereotypical 'grandmother's magazine' image to recast it as a magazine for the 21st century. His design work for the Reader's Digest tablet magazine has helped it approach 100,000 subscriptions, and has influenced the print edition as well.

Congratulations, Bob!
