Nadia Askar has been promoted to managing editor of both Plumbing & Mechanical and Reeves Journal, effective immediately.

Originally hired as associate editor for all four magazines within BNP Media’s Plumbing Group — Plumbing & Mechanical, Supply House Times, PM Engineer, and Reeves Journal — her position morphed more into primarily working on PM while assisting the other three brands as needed. Askar will continue in certain key parts of her role with PM while leading the direction of Reeves Journal’s new RJ 2.0 quarterly print and eBook products, as well as the implementation of its overall digital strategy.

“Since joining BNP Media in November 2013, Nadia has been a rising star in the Plumbing Group,” Senior Group Publisher Darrell Dal Pozzo said. “Her jack-of-all-trades, can-do attitude has been a key factor in the group’s continued growth.”

"Nadia is a talented journalist and an invaluable member of the Plumbing Group team," PM Chief Editor Jen Anesi-Brombach said. "I know she will continue to stand out in her new roles with PM and Reeves Journal."

“I'm excited for this opportunity to grow within such a great group,” Askar said. “Everyone — from my coworkers to the manufactures and contractors that I've met and interviewed — has been kind, helpful and patient with me as I learned on the job. The past four years have taught me a lot about such an important industry, and I hope to never stop learning.”
