Douglas Publications, owner of B2B magazines such as American Painting Contractor, has purchased the Briefings Publishing Group from Wicks Business Information.
Given that Briefings has its office in Alexandria, Va., and that Douglas's headquarters are in Richmond, Va., there's likely to be some worry about job loss at the Briefings Group.
But Douglas says it intends to keep the Alexandria office.
Smart folks at the Briefings Group may want to try and transfer to a new job at Wicks's headquarters in Fairfield. That little Connecticut village on the Atlantic coastline has two colleges, a cute downtown and one of my favorite coffeeshops in the Northeast.
