BlackBook Sold to Founder

BlackBook magazine is going back home. According to the New York Observer, Vibe Holdings has sold the magazine back to Evanly Schindler, who found the publication all the way back in 1996.

The magazine’s other owner is Jon Bond, who currently serves as “chief tomorroist” (yes, we’re serious) for Tomorro LLC, a marketing company. Despite that cool title, Bond is more well known as the founder of Kirshenbaum Bond & Partners.

The sale involved several other investors, including Steve Zacks, Aaron Hicklin and Bill Powers (former BlackBook editors), Jamie Driver, Mogility Capital and Picture Farm Productions.

Financial details of the deal weren’t disclosed.
