Columbus CEO announces the appointment of Mary Yost as editor, effective immediately, to lead the monthly business magazine and daily website.

Yost’s career spans several decades of executive leadership, both locally and statewide. Most recently, Mary served in a volunteer capacity as public affairs director, Ohio, for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve.

For over twenty years, she directed communications, media and public relations as vice president, public affairs for The Ohio Hospital Association, statewide, as well as overseeing operations of the Foundation for Healthy Communities. She returns to the Dispatch Printing Co. where she started her career as a reporter in 1973.

“Columbus CEO is so fortunate to have Mary bring her many talents back to the Dispatch Printing Company,” said Katie Wolfe Lloyd, vice-president and Publisher of Dispatch Magazines, in a statement. “She has been a leader not only in our community but across the state of Ohio. We look forward to her engagement and direction for the magazine’s continued growth of in-depth business reporting in the market.”

“Having the opportunity to return to journalism and the Dispatch family is a wonderful homecoming for me,” said Yost in a statement. “My goal is to take Columbus CEO to a new level as a must-read publication for area business and community leaders.”
