Comstock’s, a business magazine in Sacramento, Calif., has named Christine Calvin, formerly its managing editor, as its new editor, reports Cathie Anderson of the Sacramento Bee.

Anderson writes, “Calvin, 31, assumed leadership of Comstock’s editorial staff after Doug Curley resigned earlier this month. Curley, Comstock’s editor for 10 years, said he left the post after Comstock-Carlson told him she wanted to take the magazine in a different direction.

“‘Christine’s going to do a great job,” Curley said. ‘I hired Christine about six years ago as … an associate editor. She moved up to be managing editor about 21/2 years ago. In the last year, we’ve brought on lots of young, talented people. … Our website is finally state of the art, and Allison Joy, whom we brought on from the Sacramento Press, has done a great job on that front.’

“Curley, 58, first worked with Comstock-Carlson at Executive Place magazine, he said, and when that publication folded in 1989, Comstock-Carlson launched Comstock’s. Curley went to work for the California Dental Association as its publications director. In 2004, when two senior Comstock’s editors abruptly departed to launch the rival Prosper magazine, Comstock-Carlson hired Curley to help take on the competition.”
