(Los Angeles, California--April 26, 2011) Ronald Lindeboom, co-founder and CEO of CreativeCOW.net (Creative Communities of the World), the online peer-to-peer community for media production professionals working in film, broadcast, and related fields, has been listed among FOLIO: Magazine’s “FOLIO: 40” for 2011. FOLIO: which is the only magazine that serves the entire magazine publishing industry, describes the “FOLIO: 40” as “some of the most distinguished magazine and media professionals from every corner of our industry,” and says that the award is “honoring the individuals creating a new chapter for the magazine industry.”
“When I started Creative COW Magazine with my wife and Creative COW co-founder, Kathlyn, I wanted to move in exactly the opposite direction of what was expected by building a strong online community first, and building a print experience that reflected its energy,” said Creative COW CEO Ronald Lindeboom. “In the filmmakers and video producers that make up Creative COW, we see a powerful belief that everything is possible, and I wanted to create a magazine that expressed that passion. I am truly honored that FOLIO: has recognized the possibilities that this model offers to those outside our market niche, and hope that it can contribute to the ongoing revival of print publishing.”
Other luminaries of the publishing world included in the 2011 “FOLIO: 40” are David Carey, President, Hearst Magazines; Lewis Dvorkin, CPO, Forbes Media; Vivek Shah, CEO, Ziff Davis Media; Rob Grimshaw, Managing Director, FT.com; Hugh Wiley, Publisher, Bloomberg Businessweek; Arriana Huffington; The New York Times; White House Press Secretary, John Carney; Felix DiFelippo, Associate Publisher, The Atlantic and many more.
