WHIP IT MEDIA proudly announces the recent acquisition of Kates-Boylston Publications as a new subsidiary of its growing media portfolio.
The acquisition will add to Whip It Media’s current product offerings and allow Kates-Boylston, the publisher of American Funeral Director and American Cemetery & Cremation magazines and Funeral Service Insider, to continue its long tradition of serving funeral homes, crematories, cemeteries and industry suppliers.
“Whip It Media’s purchase of Kates-Boylston provides a major growth opportunity for both our businesses – and will allow us to provide extended services to Kates-Boylston’s clients,” said Richard Whippen, CEO of Whip It Media. “With the stability and backing of one of the country’s leading digital companies, Kates-Boylston’s readers, advertisers and partners will benefit from improved products, services and innovation, and the company will continue to be the leading source of information in the death-care industry.”
Kates-Boylston Publications will operate as an independent company, and it will be “business as usual” as its existing management team will continue to manage operations, Whippen said.
