People

There are no such things as good companies, only good people.

PBP has a diverse group of highly educated people who have a passion for serving our 150,000 business customers with relevant information and service to help them do their jobs better.

More than half the employees at our corporate headquarters in Malvern, PA have been with us for more than 5 years. We attract the best, hire the best and give them an exciting, secure working environment where they can be empowered to achieve their long-term career goals. Our guiding principal: “There are no such things as good companies, only good people. Change the people, and you change the company.” Take a look at what our employees have to say about their experiences here at PBP:

 

Pieter VanBennekom, Editorial Director
Pieter spent 23 years working for United Press International as a foreign correspondent and eventually served as UPI’s President and CEO. He joined PBP in 1994.

 

“After a lifetime working in the general media it became clear to me that specialized information is where the action is if you want to write copy that really has an impact on your readers. And PBP is the place to practice specialized information reporting. We’re not much on job titles and job descriptions around here. But if you want to work in an open environment where nothing important happens unless you’re in on it, this is the place.”

Mike Brown, Marketing Director
Mike worked as a Vice President of Chase Manhattan Bank. He joined PBP in 2000.

 

“The high-performance culture at PBP impressed me immediately. I have worked at large organizations where bureaucracy and politics are the norm. PBP is a meritocracy where everyone gets to be CEO of his or her own area – given the opportunity to succeed in a culture where people are measured by performance and actions – not words.”

John Walston, Group Publisher
John worked as the Deputy Managing Editor of USA Today and executive editor of The Wilmington News Journal. He joined PBP in 1999.

 

“For the first time in my life, I know for certain that what I’m writing actually makes a difference. The quality of what I do is directly reflected in the numbers of the business results. But, more importantly, my readers tell me so every day.”

Tom Schubert, COO & CFO
Tom was the founding SVP/CFO for Novacare Employee Services. He joined PBP in 1999.

 

“We have a terrific team and are really proud of our 18 straight years of business growth. It’s exciting to have launched 6 new divisions over the past five years. And it fits with our strategy of providing great opportunities to our people.”

Ken Dooley, Senior Editor
Ken was Editor-in-Chief at the Bureau of Business Practice and President of Madison Productions. He joined PBP in 1998:

 

“The focus of PBP publications is always on the customer. The test of every piece of copy is, ‘what does it do for the reader?’ While standards are high, the editorial team has the experience and talent to meet them in a creative and supportive environment.”

Nicole Riegl, Divisional Marketing Director
Nicole joined PBP in 1998.

 

“Your reward for doing well on what you are working on is bigger, better and more exciting projects. This is the kind of atmosphere that I thrive in and the reason that I’ve been with PBP for over ten years and have worked in nine different areas with increasing responsibilities. I push myself to do my best as I never know what the next opportunity is going to be and I don’t want to miss out. Plus, it’s motivating to be surrounded by co-workers who subscribe to the same philosophy.”

Dannie Evans, Divisional Marketing Director
Dannie joined PBP in 2006.

 

“PBP is small enough that my individual contributions have direct impact on the business and are appreciated, and we’re big enough that we have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects and experience continuous growth.”
