20 Convenience Store News | DECEMBER 2016 | WWW.CSNEWS.COM INDUSTRY ROUNDUP EnsembleIQ, parent company of Convenience Store News, continues to grow its portfolio of leading media brands. In its latest move, the Chicago-based company acquired Canadian Grocer, Pharmacy Practice+, Profession Santé, The Medical Post and other allied brands from Canadian media and communications company Rogers Media. "We're thrilled to have such powerful titles join our portfolio of brands," said EnsembleIQ CEO and President Peter Hoyt. "Not only do they align perfectly in serving some of our key markets throughout North America, but they have a rich history of helping their readers and advertisers find success in their careers, which is the primary objective of EnsembleIQ." The transaction was led by Korry Stagnito, who has been named president of EnsembleIQ-Canada. He also takes on the position of EnsembleIQ's chief business development officer. In this role, Stagnito will spearhead all of the company's future merger-and- acquisition activities. The brands acquired from Rogers Media provide a strategic complement to EnsembleIQ's U.S. media titles that include Convenience Store News, Progressive Grocer, Shopper Marketing, Retail Leader and The Gourmet Retailer, as well as Canadian titles such as Pharmacy Business, and Your Convenience Manager.
