Changing Places

Skip Allen, publisher of Southern Boating and Marine Business Journal, announced three recent appointments to the magazines' editorial staff.

The additions include L.J. Wallace, who was named executive editor, and managing editor Nancy Birnbaum.

“Southern Boating has enjoyed nearly 40 years as the South’s most popular boating publication,” Allen said in a statement. “In order to see us through the next 40, we’re renewing our commitment to providing excellent content. The combination of L.J.’s extensive experience writing about boats, fishing and the Eastern Seaboard, as well as Nancy’s proven ability to shape content that appeals to boating enthusiasts of all ages and interests, will surely keep Southern Boating at the top.”

Wallace, who is from New Jersey, relocated to Charleston, S.C., where he started the Water’s Edge radio program, featuring news, views and commentary on everything nautical. He is a serious angler and a seasoned skipper, editor and writer with published work in Marlin and Seaworthy, and online at UsedBoats.com and BoatUS.com.

Birnbaum has been a freelance writer/editor and a marketing consultant for the past two years. She was online editor for the previous three years at Blue Water Sailing magazine.

The third new addition to the Southern Boating team is Laura Dunn, who was named assistant editor after working as an editorial intern for the magazine.
