Modern Luxury Acquires Aspen

Modern Luxury, publisher of 40 titles in 12 cities, has acquired Aspen magazine. Aspen publishes six times per year and is edited by Janet O’Grady, who maintains her role.

“I have been fortunate to know Janet since she purchased the magazine more than 20 years ago and have continued to be amazed by the stories she has broken and the overall quality of the product,” said Alan Klein, group publisher of Modern Luxury, in a statement. “Janet has developed a brand that is recognized across the U.S. for its ability to attract the attention of some of the most important and influential people in the country.”

“I’m excited to be part of a company that is bullish on great content and print, and is staying ahead of the curve in integrating print with digital platforms in these game-changing times,” added O’Grady.

Aspen was founded in 1974.
