Changing Places

Chris Pelikan will assume the role of managing editor at Great Lakes Scuttlebutt, the company announced.

He will oversee the procurement and placement of news and releases in the “Press Room” and “Features” sections of the print and online components in Great Lakes Scuttlebutt's multimedia portfolio.

“It‘s clear we need someone to man the helm for managing the large amount of content we will be dealing with moving forward,” president and publisher Erik Kyle said in a statement. “Chris understands the importance of supplying the Great Lakes active boater and marine businesses with real-time product news and expanded edit features representing both the national and global front, and keeping the content coffers full for our alternative print magazine, online magazine, website and weekly e-blast.”

Great Lakes Scuttlebutt was founded in 1992 by Jerry Kyle, who sold the magazine to his son, Erik, in 2001. A family-owned business, Great Lakes Scuttlebutt's distribution has grown to include more than 1,500 locations on the shores of Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, Lake St. Clair, Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.
