Editor-in-Chief,

“She is the only Canadian editor who is her own brand,” said Moses Znaimer, Founder and CEO of ZoomerMedia Ltd., when he announced Suzanne Boyd’s appointment as the founding Editor-In-Chief of Zoomer Magazine in 2008. With a veteran editorial team assembled from some of the country’s best-selling print brands and an a-list of contributors, Ms. Boyd and the team achieved a very successful launch. Zoomer has quickly resonated with its relevant blend of policy and lifestyle content. Ms. Boyd’s positioning of Zoomer — “as much a movement as a magazine” — has lead it to quickly achieve cultural significance, being dubbed the Baby Boomer Bible by the industry authority MastheadOnline. Its success has lead to a reach of 1.5 million readers a month.

Ms. Boyd also serves as the editor-in-chief of everythingzoomer.com, and as such, works closely with ZoomerMedia’s digital arm to oversee it’s design, content and social media outreach. A keen consumer of media with an ability to discern and extrapolate key market trends into strategy, Ms. Boyd is also on the Executive Management Team of ZoomerMedia Ltd.
