|Destiny Image restructures for 'strategic development'|
|Thursday, 20 September 2012 11:00 PM EDT|
The owners of Pennsylvania-based charismatic publisher Destiny Image recently formed Nori Media Group (NMG) as the parent company of their expanding divisions.
Nathan Martin, who has been with the company for 13 years, most recently serving in the role of chief financial officer, will serve as president of NMG to oversee and support the divisions Destiny Image, Sound Wisdom and Destiny Image Films.
Owners Donald Nori, Jr. and Jon Nori made the move "based on the need for strategic development."
Martin is "like a brother to me," said Nori Jr., who will serve as NMG's CEO. "I believe he will not only pick up where I left off, but I am confident that he will take all ventures of the Nori Media Group to new and exciting heights, only increasing the company's momentum for the years ahead."
Destiny Image is home to New York Times and USA Today best-selling authors, including T.D. Jakes, Cindy Trimm, Jackie Kendall, Bill Johnson, Tommy Tenney and Myles Munroe.
"We've taken on several new challenges—curriculum development, church market growth and digital products," Martin said. "We're cutting back the number of titles released per month and focusing more time and marketing efforts on each new release. I am truly excited about the opportunities ahead of us.
"My vision is to unlock the potential of our employees, authors and company, and by doing so, see our readers genuinely impacted by the quality of resources we produce," he added.
