NEWTON, Mass. — January 30, 2012 — Questex Media announced today that Alan Cameron, editor-in-chief of GPS World, has been appointed publisher of the magazine, its website, eight e-mail newsletters, a geographic information systems counterpart Geospatial Solutions, and other B-to-B communications vehicles supporting the international positioning, navigation, timing, and mapping industries.
GPS World, the flagship of the enterprise, covers the U.S. Global Positioning System, Russia’s GLONASS constellation, Europe’s Galileo satellite navigation system, China’s Beidou/Compass system, and Japan’s QZSS. GPS World was the first publication in the market, launched over 20 years ago, and continues to be the market’s leading publication. GPS World is also the only publication in the industry that offers an audited circulation.
“The world is entering the Golden Age of GNSS (global navigation satellite systems),” said Kevin Stoltman, Vice President of the Industrial Specialty Group at Questex Media. “The market for GPS- and GNSS-related technologies continues to expand dramatically, changing as it goes. Governments in North America, Europe, Russia, Asia, and the Pacific are all actively funding and growing their systems, and companies from large corporations to small enterprises are fielding new products and services daily.”
“Cameron will continue engaging actively with industry leaders, helping the community meet new challenges and capitalize on new opportunities,” Stoltman added. “He is spearheading significant initiatives, spanning both print and online, to more effectively serve the global audience.”
Cameron has played a key role at GPS World since joining the publication as senior editor in 2000. He speaks at many association- and government-sponsored meetings and forums, organizes an annual Leadership Dinner for the industry, has launched several electronic publications including a Digital Edition of the print magazine, and pioneered blogs and social media use in the community.
He became editor-in-chief of the magazine in 2006, and now adds new business development, advertising sales, print and digital circulation, marketing, and strategic planning to his direct and supervisory duties.
