Keith Kelly of the New York Post is reporting that Success magazine is returning to newsstands after a five-year period in which it was not published.
Kelly writes, “A new business lifestyle magazine has beaten CondÃ© Nast to the punch. Success, a magazine with a 115-year history, is coming back after a five-year hiatus.
“A new group of investors has hired veteran editor Gay Bryant – who once won a National Magazine Award for General Excellence with Mirabella – to resuscitate the magazine with a May issue.
“She is joining the publication’s director, Joseph Guerriero, who had most recently been the vice president of integrated marketing and brand development at Billboard Information Group in a new company called the Quantum Media Venture Fund. ‘Our approach is to give business people the means to achieve a successful life – both in work and life,’ said Bryant.
“Guerriero said the new company is relying on the business seminar company Get Motivated, Inc. to supply about 650,000 subscribers.”

The Conde Nast reference is to the fact that the magazine company is planning to roll out its own business magazine later this year.
