I’m excited to share this news with you!
For the past few months I’ve been in negotiation with Advantage Media Group|Forbes Books, to acquire EMSI. Finally, on Monday, January 29th, we signed the papers and our new company name is now officially News & Experts.
EMSI with its News & Experts division (our face to the media) has been “my baby” ever since I launched it 28 years in 1990. It’s my legacy in a way and it’s always been my desire to build the brand bigger and stronger so our work can positively impact more people. This acquisition allows that growth and expansion to happen in a way that was truly beyond my wildest dream.
In 2016, Advantage Media Group partnered with media giant Forbes to create Forbes Books, the first-ever book publishing imprint by Forbes. As they are a fast-growing authority marketing and publishing company that spans the globe, we’re so proud to be a part of their team and able to contribute to their continued success.
This marriage makes sense on so many levels. We’ve been representing Advantage authors to the media for many years and have a proven track record of working well together. As a result, our relationship is one of great mutual trust and respect, and we share a total commitment to our clients.
I want to assure you that absolutely nothing will change in our relationship with you! Adam Witty, Founder and CEO of Advantage|Forbes Books, has insisted we continue doing “business as usual.” Our services remain the same, as do our rates and agreements. But even more important, all of our team remains the same. They’re each very excited about the career opportunities and growth potential joining the Advantage Family offers them personally.
As for me, I have no plans to go anywhere for quite a long time – I love what I do too much!
This is truly an exciting time for all of us.
