Mark Lamborn
Putnam to be featured in WV Executive magazinee

April 4, 2017

A native of Albuquerque, Mark Lamborn has lived in West Virginia since 1991.

"I love West Virginia," he told Putnam Rotarians today. "West Virginia is a good place to live, a good place to work, and a good place to do business."

In 1999 he started West Virginia Executive magazine.

"It's all about the destruction of negative sterotypes," he said, "about new paradigms about West Virginia.

"There are good people here," he added, "and a lot of money to be made here.

"In the United States of America, every day is a trillion dollar economy, the biggest economy in world history. Every day in America there are millions and millions of dollars of business done in places like Morgantown and Charleston."

The purpose of the Executive magazine, he said, is to reach companies doing $2 million in sales each year, and companies which want to do better than that.

The subscription list includes 33,000 people. Advertizing is pricy, but it's intended for business people to connect with other business people.

The slick 96-page winter issue of the Executive includes a special section on Nitro and its centennial of history beginning with the "Great War" in 1917. The special section includes several pages of advertising for businesses in the Nitro area from the Mardi Gras Casino & Resort to a company offering background searches and covert corporate office sweeps.

The May issue will feature similar sections on St. Albans and Lewisburg.

Putnam is scheduled for an appearance in the Executive in the August issue.

"My magazine is a business magazine," Lamborn says.

WV Executive / Discover WV

     In this issue, we're also launching our 2017 issue of Discover West Virginia (DWV). One of the reasons we do an annual tourism magazine is to remind West Virginians how close they are to one-of-a-kind beauty and worldclass outdoor adventures. We also produce DWV because we want outsiders to come and experience our great state for themselves. . . . Our Mountain Mama is one of the most beautiful and memorable places in the world and has something for every interest and age group.
      Despite our challenges, there are things all around us that can give us the inspiration we need to keep fighting for a better future for our state. We hope you'll use WVE and DWV to find your own inspiration and share with us the great things you see happening in the Mountain State.
