Kimberly Newbury Named among Folio’s 2017 Class of Top Women in Media 

NEW YORK (April 11, 2017) ─ Kimberly Newbury, managing director of Questex Travel Group’s e-learning and loyalty department, has been named as one of the director-level doers in Folio’s 2017 class of Top Women in Media.  

The annual program celebrates the creativity, innovation, and accomplishments of women in the magazine media industry. Each class of honorees have fearlessly moved their teams, brands, and companies forward, made strides in their respective markets, and created lasting impressions on their colleagues.

Each year, a select group of women are nominated by industry peers and hand-selected by the Folio: team to represent the best and brightest rising stars, entrepreneurs, director-level doers, corporate visionaries, and industry leaders. The 2017 class of honorees includes luminaries like Condé Nast’s Lisa Valentino, Twitter’s Janice Morris, Mortgage Bankers Association’s Teressa Lurk, Grist’s Eve Andrews, and POPSUGAR’s Lisa Sugar.

“I’m honored to be recognized among such an esteemed group of accomplished women in media,” said Newbury.  “It has been a privilege helping to develop and grow our e-learning platform and bring it to the forefront of B2B training technology.”

As the managing director for the e-learning & loyalty group, Newbury is responsible for driving revenue for Travel Agent University, the travel industry’s premier e-learning platform, said John McMahon, executive vice president of the Questex Travel Group, who nominated Newbury for her award. 

“Kimberly has not only been integral in establishing Travel Agent University as the go-to e-learning platform in the travel industry,” said McMahon, “she has leveraged our custom technology across the other divisions of Questex LLC to create incremental revenue for the company.  I couldn’t be more proud of her achievement.”

Honorees will be recognized at Folio’s celebratory luncheon on Wednesday, June 7, 2017 at the Edison Ballroom in New York City. 

Questex Travel Group has been serving the travel industry for over 85 years as the publisher of Travel Agent and Luxury Travel Advisor magazines, producer of the Travel Agent University e-learning platform, and organizer of live industry events including Travel Industry Exchange, Luxury Travel Advisor’s ULTRA Summit, and ULTRA Trendsetters.
