About Our Company Putman Media isn’t your average media company, so we’re not looking for your average CFO/COO . We’re privately held, which means we’re flexible, so you need to be, too. And because we’re about 70 people strong, we’re nimble, so get your running shoes on. Last but not least, we’re family-owned and managed, and that means we have values and a belief in doing things the right way. We want to know if you share those values. A few more details: we’re 75 years young, and we’ve always served manufacturing communities (translation: we know our business). We hire people who are entrepreneurs at heart and love what they do. We don’t want our teams jumping through hoops. We want them to act quickly, do what it takes to satisfy the client and create great media products and services.
