Prior, Mr. McGraw enjoyed a distinguished career in publishing and media that embodied the industry’s evolution from a predominantly paper-based business to the dynamic digital-driven world of today. Central National–Gottesman’s Lindenmeyr Central division was where David spent the first fifteen years of his business development and management career, representing domestic and European multi-national paper manufacturers while developing and solidifying contractual relationships with major magazine publishing and retail catalogue clients.
Subsequently, David helped many of those same magazine and catalogue publishing clients enhance their business models with new e.marketing, publishing digitation and content delivery solutions. As internet marketing and new media was in its infancy, David became an angel investor and Business Development Executive for Silicon Valley and Israeli based internet startup firms. These innovative companies empowered publishers to market one to one, deliver their digitized magazine and newspaper content to their online subscriber bases, and monetize searchable historical archives—while leveraging the power of real-time analytics.
