Lifestyle Publications, owned by the Schowengerdt family, was founded in 2009 and currently publishes lifestyle magazines in eight cities. Steven Schowengerdt is founder and chief executive, and Dale Schowengerdt is chief operating officer and legal counsel.
Andy Manz will serve as publisher of Boulder Lifestyles, a free, glossy magazine that will be mailed to 14,000 single-family homes in the Boulder area.
Allison Reedy, a graduate of the University of Colorado-Boulder, will serve as editor and coordinate efforts of freelance writers and photographers.
Manz, who recently sold his interest in a restaurant in Vail, has been in Boulder since August. The Boulder magazine was founded Nov. 10, and Manz began setting up the magazine and making advertising sales from his home office. Manz said he is beginning to recruit a sales staff.
Manz said the magazine will have reoccurring articles such as family spotlight, home of the month and a business spotlight. It will present the “latest hot spots” in the Boulder area. Special features will include local history, students of the month, hometown heroes and how the community “pays it forward.”
