Active Interest Media announced that Richard Thiel will join the company as the editor-at-large of AIM’s Marine Group. He’ll contribute to the recently acquired Power & Motoryacht, as well as PassageMaker, Soundings and Yachts International.

Thiel served as editor-in-chief of Power& Motoryacht, where he spent 25 years producing the most respected marine magazine for the hands-on and serious boating enthusiast.

“With Richard coming on board, we’re able to create an even deeper bench of talent across multiple titles,” says Gary DeSanctis, group publisher of the AIM Marine Group. “He’ll play a key role in ensuring we continue to create the best quality brands.”

Going forward, Power & Motoryacht editor-in-chief George Sass Jr. will build on the editorial direction developed by Thiel and his staff.

“I’m looking forward to continuing and enhancing the vision developed by Richard,” said Sass. “And now with AIM’s resources and commitment to editorial excellence behind the brand, and an all- star editorial team, we’ll be able to fast-track an evolutionary strategy across print, digital, and event platforms.”
