Active Interest Media announced that Wade Luce was promoted to publisher of PassageMaker magazine, effective immediately.

Luce will continue to serve as West Coast and Pacific Rim region sales representative of the AIM Marine Group magazines Power & Motoryacht and Anglers Journal, Anglers Journal TV and other marine titles.

“With Wade’s experience in print and digital, as well as his intimate knowledge of the market, he is a natural choice to take the helm of this incredible franchise,” AIM Marine Group publisher and general manager Gary DeSanctis said. “Between his can-do attitude and the high level of respect he’s earned in the marine industry, I’m excited to see where the brand will go.”

Luce is an industry veteran with 29 years of experience.

"PassageMaker is the flagship brand in its market and is incredibly well-respected. I’m very excited to lead this brand moving forward,” Luce said. “I’m also looking forward to being part of the popular TrawlerFest series. Getting to interact with our passionate readers on the docks is something I’ve always enjoyed.”

Prior to joining the AIM Marine Group, Luce spent nearly a decade as vice president/publisher of Boating magazine.
