A visionary chief executive officer, Adam I. Sandow, leads the Sandow Media Corporation. At the age of twenty, Sandow created his first publication for Celebrity Cruise Lines. By the age of twenty-five, he launched his first national consumer magazine: Honeymoon, which quickly became the best-selling travel magazine on newsstands nationwide. After building Honeymoon into an overwhelming success, Sandow acquired five separate adventure travel magazines and merged them into Adventure Journal, the nation’s largest circulation adventure travel magazine. Sandow sold his publishing business in 1999, and became a principal in the Internet start-up, The Knot. His entrepreneurial expertise and extensive knowledge of the media industry was instrumental in orchestrating The Knot’s explosive growth. Sandow’s leadership directly contributed to the successful initial public offering of The Knot by Credit Suisse First Boston. Today, The Knot is a $35 million dollar per year media company that dominates the nation’s wedding market. In 2001 Sandow left The Knot and founded Sandow Media Corporation. Using Sandow’s vast experience with public and private media companies, Sandow Media Corporation takes on the challenge of reinventing the business model for national consumer books and magazines, and in addition, builds uniquely-positioned publications that thrive in both print and online.
