Folio is a magazine industry publication, and next month it’s recognizing what’s called the Folio: 100, media’s “most innovative entrepreneurs and market shaker-uppers.” If you peruse the list of honorees, you’ll see folks from many top national titles and brands, largely big-shots out of New York City.
Scroll on down to the group categorized as “Visionaries” though, and right there at the top you’ll find our own D Magazine Partners president Christine Allison and chairman/editor in chief Wick Allison.
All of us who are lucky enough to work here recognize what a unique company this is. Christine and Wick aren’t afraid to take chances and to give any promising idea a shot. They’re always looking for a new angle on this business and early on recognized the need to transform what was once a single-title paper-and-ink business into a still-expanding digital enterprise.
I asked Christine what this means to her:
“It’s an honor, to be sure, but we couldn’t do what we do in any other city. To be acknowledged nationally is a big nod to Dallas and our incredible staff.”
