Canadian publisher named top 25 under 35

Ryan Nesbitt, 34, who is the publisher of Crossroads This Week and South Mountain Press has been named as one of Editor & Publisher’s “Top 25 under 35” for 2018.

Nesbitt, from Shoal Lake, Manitoba, was named publisher in 2017 after his father, previous owner Gregory Nesbitt, retired. His take on the role was not to try and compete with social media or the daily newspapers, but instead, focus on the niche that Crossroads This Week and the South Mountain Press inform.

“He breathed new life into both publications,” said Marcia Harrison, an editor at parent company Nesbitt Publishing Ltd. “He did this by reinforcing to staff what we do well and giving us flexible work hours to allow us to tap into our creativity and allow us to work when we are feeling productive.”
