Prior to launching her own content business, she served as Content Director, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief for the Society of Independent Show Organizers, the leading global association for independent show producers.

Previously, she served as editor at large at Trade Show Executive for 10 years and as Editor-In-Chief and Publisher of EXPO magazine, where she worked for 16 years. In 2020, Danica earned three journalism awards for editorial excellence from the American Society of Business Publication Editors.

“I’m thrilled to join the Tarsus Media Group as Vice President, Content,” Tormohlen said. “I’m looking forward to using my 29 years of industry experience to supplement and enhance the editorial at TSNN, the longest-running B2B content provider serving the trade show industry, and its related brands, including Corporate Event News and the TSNN Awards.

She added, “I’m excited to work with such an incredible team that includes many long-time industry friends and leaders like Doug Emslie, Rachel Wimberly, John Rice, Lori Tenny and Lisa Plummer Savas.”

Maddux has worked in sales in the events industry for several high-profile companies, such as PennWell’s Power Group, Access Intelligence’s Power Group and Eaton Hall Exhibitions.

Maddux will work with long-time VP of Sales John Rice on partner relationships and media sales for TSNN.com and CorporateEventNews.com.
