Kimberly Newbury

This year’s class of Top Women in Media from Folio includes Kimberly Newbury, managing director of Questex Travel Group’s e-learning and loyalty department.

The annual program celebrates the creativity, innovation, and accomplishments of women in the magazine media industry. Each class of honorees have fearlessly moved their teams, brands, and companies forward, made strides in their respective markets, and created lasting impressions on their colleagues.

Each year, a select group of women are nominated by industry peers and hand-selected by the Folio: team to represent the best and brightest rising stars, entrepreneurs, director-level doers, corporate visionaries, and industry leaders. The 2017 class of honorees includes luminaries like Condé Nast’s Lisa Valentino, Twitter’s Janice Morris, Mortgage Bankers Association’s Teressa Lurk, Grist’s Eve Andrews, and POPSUGAR’s Lisa Sugar.
