CLEVELAND – April 16, 2018 – North Coast Media (NCM) is proud to announce Digital Media Content Producer Kelly Limpert has been awarded a Young Leaders Scholarship from the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE).

Limpert will receive her award at the Azbee Awards of Excellence Banquet May 10, 2018 at The National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

Originating in 2001, the Young Leaders Scholarship is awarded to five of the country’s top business editors under 30 each year. The scholarship will fund Limpert’s attendance at the ASBPE National Conference, which is held in conjunction with the awards banquet.

“Kelly is a skillful videographer and video editor, with an eye for what works and an innate creative ability to make something out of nothing. I’ve been impressed many times by her technical proficiency. Kelly has a very distinctive editorial voice; you can tell a Kelly-tweet from an everyone-else-tweet. The same goes for her blog and feature writing,” says NCM Director of Audience Engagement, Bethany Chambers. “Kelly is a dedicated employee and one of the hardest workers you’ll meet. When she takes on a project, she sets out to be the best at it and has the persistence to see that through. I admire that tenacity and I am glad she’s brought that here to our team.”

Limpert is responsible for developing content for the digital properties of NCM’s Landscape Management, Golfdom and Athletic Turf brands. She also assists with video coverage of the brands and multi-media production, often traveling to tradeshows and client events to develop content for publication.

“In her role as digital content producer, she has proven to be an excellent teammate who is always willing to share new ideas, doesn’t hesitate to jump in where needed and, most importantly, consistently executes our digital strategy,” said Marisa Palmieri, Editor of Landscape Management. “Day in and day out, Kelly carries out the plans we have in place, which has led to stellar digital results for LM, including a 39 percent increase in page views in 2018 over 2017.”

Limpert is a graduate of Ohio University who holds a Bachelor of Science in Strategic Communication from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism. She has been with NCM since September 2015.

Limpert is the fourth NCM editor to be awarded a Young Leaders Scholarship. Marisa Palmieri earned hers in 2007, Joelle Harms in 2016 and Allison Barwacz in 2017.
