World Business Media names Michael Madsen Publisher of Government Security News
GSN parent company World Business Media has announced that Michael Madsen, the company’s first advertising director and longtime sales “MVP,” has been promoted from Associate Publisher to Publisher of Government Security News and its product line, which includes monthly print and digital editions, high-traffic websites, daily and weekly email newsletters, awards programs, webinars, white papers and other lead-generating and educational vehicles.
“Mike Madsen has been the bulwark of the GSN sales effort for 11 years,” said GSN Managing Partner Adrian Courtenay. “He’s got great sales skills and instincts and is greatly appreciated by our client base for consistently focusing on getting them the best value for their investments in Government Security News.”
Prior to joining Government Security News, Madsen spent 15 years in the publishing, trade show and conference businesses, representing leading BtoB companies such as Reed Elsevier, Business News Publishing and the Blenheim Group. He was also responsible for the growth and success of a number of business trade publications.
Madsen says that he has taken great pride in watching Government Security News develop into the “Bible of the Industry,” and he firmly believes as America winds down from two wars, the country recognizes the need to redirect assets and focus on dealing with new challenges and national imperatives in immigration reform, education, improvement of critical infrastructure, disaster preparedness and emergency response -- and always maintaining our vigilance and making sure that the homeland is secure.
Mr. Madsen graduated with a BA in Political Science from Seton Hall University in South Orange, New Jersey and currently resides in Red Bank, NJ.
