PALM BEACH MEDIA GROUP
Palm Beach Media Group is a proven leader in publishing excellence. In addition to Palm Beach Illustrated (which celebrated its 60th anniversary in March 2012) and Naples Illustrated (which celebrated its 15th anniversary in January 2013), the company's flagships, Palm Beach Media Group has numerous award-winning luxury resort and club special publications, in addition to the twice-yearly Weddings Illustrated and annual Charity Registers in Palm Beach and Naples.
The corporation is owned by Ronald J. Woods, a former Michigan industrialist, now a Florida resident. Since his purchase of Palm Beach Media Group in 1991, Mr. Woods has invested heavily in the firm, bringing in extensive business and publishing talent and upgrading both facilities and staff. The results have put Palm Beach Media Group—a profitable and fast-growing privately held corporation—on the map.
