Molly Rogers was named managing editor of Automatic Merchandiser and VendingMarketWatch.com, collectively known as the “vending brands” in the Endeavor Business Media family. The appointment is effective immediately.
In her new role, Rogers will ensure the efficient, creative and forward-thinking functions of the print and online business-to-business news outlets. She will report to publisher Jolene Gulley-Bolton and succeeds Nick Montano, who had been editor since January 2021.
Rogers brings 20 years’ experience in custom publishing, B2B and B2C magazines, as well as advertising and marketing. In addition to her classic newsroom skills, she is an expert at helping companies connect to their target audiences through strong editorial solutions. Most recently, Rogers was managing editor of Processing magazine, P.I. Process Instrumentation (formerly Flow Control) and Water Technology brands.
“Molly has superb journalism, organizational and communications skills, and I couldn’t be happier with EBM’s choice for my successor,” said outgoing editor Nick Montano. “In the two weeks I’ve worked with Molly, she’s already formed a deep appreciation for our readership.”
Rogers is based in Birmingham, AL, and can be reached at [email protected] or (205) 409-0843. Industry members attending this year’s NAMA Show in Chicago can meet her there.
