New York, NY. July 3, 2008—A new vehicle for healthcare marketers will be launched

According to Stashower, who is based in the company’s New York City office,
“We are launching PM360 in response to product manager’s needs for practical, how-to
marketing information to help them make the right decisions on the many responsibilities
mandated by their position. ” She added, “By complementing professional information
with content of personal interest, we plan to make PM360an indispensable tool to help
busy and productive marketing professionals stay at the top of their game.”

successful, busy executives responsible for their brands,” he said, adding that the
publication’s readers are looking for insights and advice about their jobs and careers,
along with ideas that will enhance their personal lives. Cheng was previously managing

The magazine will contain news and advice from experts to help product
managers navigate the changing, complex, and highly regulated healthcare
environment. It will also offer news of new products and services, providing vendors an
opportunity to showcase their offerings to prime prospects.
Each month, the magazine’s feature sections will focus on a major area of
importance. In August, these include a focus on product management strategies,
