Cygnus Names New RVTD Editor, Publisher
Cygnus Business Media has named Bob Carnahan as publisher and Dana Nelsen as editor for two of the company’s trade publications – RV Trade Digest and Light Truck and SUV magazines.
According to a press release, Carnahan joins Cygnus with more than 15 years experience in the light truck and SUV accessory markets with eight years experience in publishing/trade shows. Previously at National Business Media, Broomfield, Colo., he worked in various capacities within the company’s automotive division. Carnahan replaces Wolfgang Neuwirth who left the company in November.
“I look forward to the challenge of helping promote ideas, ethics and growth opportunities in both industries,” Carnahan said. “Identifying specific ways our publications and websites can help clients and readers achieve their goals will be a major focus for me.”
Nelsen, also formerly of National Business Media, has worked in the RV industry for several years and was the former editor of Toy & Hauler Business magazine, a publication targeting dealership owners in the RV and power sports industries. Nelsen replaces Greg Gerber, who also left the company in late November.
“I’m really excited to be involved with RV Trade Digest,” Nelsen said. “As readers have come to expect, we will continue to offer up-to-the-minute information on the website, plus regularly e-mail industry news to our readers.”
Gerber and Neuwirth joined Milo Media Publications, where they are starting up a new RV trade publication along with other projects.
