Peter Mitchel

Peter Mitchel, a veteran publishing industry executive serving on the Board of Directors of Technology Publishing/PaintSquare, has been appointed President of the company by CEO Harold Hower, who formerly served as both President and CEO.  The appointment is effective Jan. 18.

Mitchel recently served as chief operating officer of Boat International USA, publisher of Boat International USA Magazine and Dockwalk Magazine, both serving the megayacht industry. Previously, he was general manager and publisher for Soundings Publications, a major recreational marine news media group with four publications.

In addition to his experience with marine media, Mitchel has held executive positions with Time Magazine, Cadmus Consumer Publishing, Diversified Business Communications, and Vanguarde Media. His roles in these companies have included finance manager; chief financial officer; vice president, finance and publishing operations; and general manager.

He holds a BS in mathematics from St. Lawrence University and an MBA from the Amos Tuck School of Business Administration at Dartmouth College.

As president, Mitchel will oversee the day-to-day operations of Technology Publishing/PaintSquare, whose media properties include Journal of Protective Coatings & Linings (JPCL), the voice of the technical society SSPC; Painting & Wallcovering Contractor (PWC) magazine; Paint BidTracker, a daily electronic publication featuring project leads on coatings work; and PaintSquare News, a daily e-newsletter for the paint and coatings industry.

“The appointment of Peter Mitchel is a significant step in the leadership succession process for the company,” said Hower, who founded the company in 1984 and has been its leader for 26 years. “Peter is a consummate professional with great business judgment and strong leadership skills. And he has a clear vision of how to transition media companies from a primary print orientation to a platform neutral orientation where print and digital media operate together synergistically.”
