Recognition: FOLIO: 100 List Honors SGC Horizon's Tony Mancini and Patrick O'Toole as "Under the Radar" Change Agents in Media

Arlington Heights, IL--(Marketwired - Oct 17, 2013) - The annual FOLIO: 100 exclusive list of magazine media's most innovative and entrepreneurial thinkers includes two SGC Horizon publishers in 2013. SGC Horizon Group Director-Principal Tony Mancini and Patrick O'Toole, publisher and editorial director of Professional Builder and Professional Remodeler magazines, have been named as FOLIO: 100 "Under the Radar" change agents.

One hundred c-suite visionaries, director-level doers and 15 under 30 influential journalists who have had a major impact on their company or the industry at large will be honored at FOLIO:'s MediaNext event on October 30, at the Marriott Marquis in New York City.

"Continuing to grow and succeed in a challenging economy has required creative strategies and launching new marketing opportunities for our business partners," says Tony Mancini. "We made the investment in quality people and technology and established new events for our Building Design+Construction, Professional Builder and Professional Remodeler products. It has been a team effort with measurable success. To be recognized by FOLIO: 100 as an innovative thinker is most gratifying."

"This is an individual award in a team business. In a period of time when digital technology has disrupted and changed the print magazine business, we are doing so much more to maintain a great connection with our readers," says Patrick O'Toole. "At the same time, we've been lucky because our readers have never needed solid business information more than they do now. It's taken the whole team, and a lot of investment, to achieve our goals."
