Healthcare's Hauber named CEO of Clipper mag

Steve Hauber has been named chief executive officer of Clipper Magazine, the direct-mail advertising subsidiary, Corporate announced in a press release moments ago. He was CEO of GCI's healthcare group, which publishes nursing publications.

Hauber succeeds Steve Zuckerman, who was one of Clipper's founders 30 years ago; he's retiring. Gannett bought Clipper in 2003.

It's unclear who will replace Hauber at the healthcare group; the press release didn't say. [Updated at 5:53 p.m. ET. Melyni Serpa, publisher of and associated publications, is replacing Hauber.]

Clipper mails 235 million magazines to approximately 28 million homes in 29 states each year.

Although I only occasionally write about Clipper, it has been one of the company's bigger subsidiaries. Last I checked, it employed more than 1,000 workers. Its headquarters is in Mountville, Pa.


  1. Melyni Serpa is the new CEO at Gannett Healthcare Group

  2. Geez Jim you used to get these scoops. Now you have to read about it on the web.

  3. It is interesting to note that all of the founders of Cliiper Magazine are retiring, not just Steve Zuckerman.

  4. As a consumer, I find Clipper to be useful when it arrives in the mail. The coupons/deals are for restaurants and services that average people might actually use.

  5. great company..... Steve H. looks to be a good hire.

  6. Very heartbreaking to see the founders leave ! They built the company from the ground up. They are why Clipper Magazine is successful .

  7. In typical Gannet style Steve either 1) failed upward or 2) was "promoted" in lieu of being laid off.

  8. Thank you for this important information. I am spreading it to my colleagues.
