Black Press Group acquires Boulevard Magazine

Black Press is pleased to announce today (June 13) that it has acquired Boulevard Magazine and related products from Boulevard Lifestyles Inc.

Boulevard Magazine has been Victoria’s leading lifestyle publication for more than 23 years,” said Rick O’Connor, Black Press President and CEO. “We are delighted to be adding this important title to our product mix of community publications and magazines serving Victoria and Vancouver Island.”

Boulevard Magazine will join a group of other magazines, periodicals and special publications currently published by Black Press. All employees of Boulevard are being retained and no changes are anticipated with respect to the publication.

Boulevard Magazine was acquired in July 2008 by Boulevard Lifestyles Inc., a company wholly owned by John Simmons. During the past  five years, the magazine has increased its publishing calendar to monthly from its original six times per year. At the same time, the company has established a foothold in custom publications including projects for United Way of Greater Victoria, Victoria Foundation and Victoria Hospitals Foundation.

“The staff at Boulevard has done an excellent job in each of its publications,” said Simmons. “I both appreciate their efforts and know that they will thrive in the Black Press organization.”

The transaction is effective immediately.
