The Idaho Business Review announced Oct. 18 the acquisition of PV Quinn Publishing Group LLC, Idaho’s premier publisher of visitor guides and other specialty publications.
PV Quinn Publishing’s titles include Welcome to Boise Magazine, Dining Decisions, Boise City Visitors Guide, Boise Area Visitors Map and several other regional publications.
“We’re delighted to have added PV Quinn to our expanding portfolio,” said Sean Evans, vice president and publisher of the Idaho Business Review. “We recognize the scope and quality of the PV Quinn products and we’ve identified them as the ideal match to complement and enhance our current offerings.”
The Idaho Business Review, the state’s leading source of business information, produces a daily business-to-business website www.idahobusinessreview.com, a weekly business publication, a monthly construction magazine and 13 specialty publications.
Established by Pat and Anne Quinn in 1983 under an agreement with the Boise Chamber of Commerce, PV Quinn Publishing Group LLC has grown to 11 tourism and recreation titles and circulates across the state. Outside of Boise, the company also publishes Travelog-Southwest Idaho, Treasure Valley Living, Idaho Heartland Living and Idaho Heartland Visitors Guide.
“We’ve grown the business,” said Quinn. “But with the size of the organization and the number of publications we have in our stable, we realized we didn’t have the resources to take it to the next level.”
“Pat and Ann Quinn have built a terrific network of publications serving Idaho’s communities and visitors,” said Mark W.C. Stodder, executive vice president of The Dolan Company’s Business Information Division. “We look forward to continuing to build this network and the company’s statewide readership.”
Pat Quinn will join the Idaho Business Review‘s advertising sales staff as account executive. PV Quinn designer Jason Jacobsen will also join the Idaho Business Review design department.
Price and terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. The deal closed Oct. 14.
