Best Version Media publications have been connecting local communities since 2007. Our story began with the vision of Dave Durand (Executive Chairman), Pete Ericksen (COO) and Paul Lubinski (CPO). The trio developed a small handful of magazines in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, area for the next five years before expanding the business in 2012.

BVM is led by Kevin O'Brien (CEO) and is now one of the fastest-growing companies in the print media industry – serving residents and local businesses across the United States and Canada.

Our community publications combine the best elements of social media and print by sharing positive, family-friendly stories with thousands of neighborhoods each month. BVM distributed more than 33 million magazines in 2020 – a number that's expected to continue rising for years to come. We're committed to helping small businesses grow with the mission of bringing people together.  


Joining BVM is an excellent opportunity to build your own magazine alongside endless support and training. We take pride in a culture that focuses on personal development and growth, and we strive to equip every individual with the resources it takes to find success.

Our goal is to put you in a position to build a community publication that connects local residents and businesses in your area and (at the same time) provide flexibility and unlimited financial opportunities for you and your family. BVM offers one-on-one coaching, field training and weekly conference calls to help you meet this goal.

We've created an outstanding environment where Publishers can excel to their fullest potential while becoming the best versions of themselves.
