Kent Brownridge Steps Down as Maxim/Blender CEO


Wednesday, August 20, 2008


Min has learned that Kent Brownridge, the point person behind Quadrangle Capital Partners' circa-$250 million purchase of Maxim, Blender, and their brand extensions from Felix Dennis in August 2007, was giving up the title of CEO of corporate parent Alpha Media Group (AMG) for the more titular role as chairman.

Succeeding as co-CEOs are Stephen Duggan and Glenn Rosenbloom, both Brownridge hires who were previously AMG chief financial/chief operating officer and president, respectively.

Pre-AMG, Brownridge was Jann Wenner's top lieutenant at Rolling Stone/Us Weekly/Men's Journal from 1975-2006. He served for most of that duration as Wenner Media general manager.

I thought they walked him out of the building? They should have anyway, he ruined Blender.
