AHC Media acquired by local execs and Lone Peak Capital Group

Atlanta-based AHC Media has been acquired by local industry executives and Lone Peak Capital Group.

David R Fournier, the new chief executive of AHC Media, has a long history in the technology and publishing industries. Brand director Beth Schilling has over 25 years’ experience in pharmaceutical and healthcare sales and marketing.
Lone Peak Capital Group, located in Atlanta and founded by Ana Kolar, Brian Simmons, and Kyle Tomlin, is a private investments firm that also provides corporate financial solutions.
In 1974, Leslie C Norins started American Health Consultants (AHC) in Atlanta, growing the medical publishing company to one of the largest providers of medical education in the world. The company was most recently owned by Thompson Media Group, which is located in Washington, DC.  The acquiring partners have retained all company employees and will keep the company’s headquarters in Buckhead.
"AHC Media has a four-decade history as the most award-winning healthcare information source," says Fournier. "The management team looks forward to furthering that tradition by enhancing our customers’ knowledge through delivery of the best content in the medical industry."
AHC Media’s information services are read by more than 25,000 professionals each month in the fields of clinical medicine, emergency care and hospital and healthcare management. Leading titles include Emergency Medicine Report, Hospital Infection Control & Prevention, and Hospital Case Management.
"AHC Media represents our first investment in the rapidly growing healthcare information industry," says Tomlin. "We are excited that it is with a company with the great track record and reputation of AHC, and that it is being led by a CEO with whom we have great respect."
