On this International Women’s Day, we are excited to announce that SEEN Magazine is now women-owned and operated by Carol Kruemmer and Amy Gill of SEEN Media Group.
Dear SEEN Magazine readers and friends, Spring is almost in the air, and with it, a new beginning — not only in terms of the season but also here at SEEN Magazine.
After six years, SEEN’s founder and CEO, Kevin Browett, has decided to return to his roots in the healthcare field, accepting a position as CEO at the Michigan Institute for Neurological Disorders (MIND) in Farmington Hills, Michigan.
We are thrilled for Kevin and also very excited to announce that we are the proud new owners of SEEN Magazine. This is a dream-come-true moment for both of us.
We’ve both worked alongside Kevin to build and grow SEEN Magazine into an incredible media company connecting local individualized experiences through content and commerce. We are deeply passionate about all things local and believe that to live a richer and fuller life, you need to make meaningful connections with the people, places and businesses in your neighborhood. We tell those stories, leveraging technology and our magazine to make it easier to discover, shop and support local.
In addition to fostering connections with Metro Detroiters through our stories, our parent company, SEEN Media Group, will do the same for local businesses. SEEN Media Group is a concierge agency with services that include content marketing, video, events, digital marketing, and custom publications. Our goal is to support creators and innovators throughout Michigan by telling their stories and uplifting their brands.
Life is messy, technology is fast and there’s so much information out there. We believe that to live a more meaningful life, you must make real connections with the people and businesses in your community — and that’s exactly what we intend to help our readers and clients do. We thank you all for being devoted readers and look forward to getting to know you in the months ahead. In the meantime, please feel free to send us an email and share your feedback on how we can continue to make SEEN Magazine the best it can be.
