BOULDER, CO (BRAIN)—Future Publishing, a media group whose titles include Procycling magazine, Cyclingnews.com and BikeRadar.com, has hired a former VeloNews sales executive as its North American sales director for its sports titles.
Nathan Forbes was a magazine advertising director for Competitor Group Inc., the parent of VeloNews. He resigned from CGI last month.
Forbes replaces Steve Medcroft, who left Future this year.
“I am very excited to have the opportunity to join such a talented group of people. The Future media portfolio is second to none, and expanding the reach of those products in North America will be my main focus. I am very pleased to have this new challenge while remaining in the industry that I love.”
