About US

We bring neighbors together and help small businesses grow.

Our Story

Best Version Media publications have been connecting local communities since 2007. Our story began with the vision of Dave Durand (Executive Chairman), Pete Ericksen (COO) and Paul Lubinski (CPO). The trio developed a handful of magazines in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area before expanding the business in 2012.

BVM is now one of the fastest-growing companies in the print media industry. Our community publications share positive, family-friendly stories with millions of readers every year. In fact, we distributed more than 37 million magazines in 2021 – a number that’s expected to continue rising for many years to come.

Our community publications combine the best elements of social media and print by sharing news and stories that matter to our readers. We introduce local businesses to neighbors by featuring families and community leaders in our monthly magazines. We’re committed to helping our sponsors grow while sharing positivity and inspiration with our readers each month.
