FRIDAY, JUNE 3: Pamela Quarterly is leaving the MediaHouse group of companies to focus on her restaurant businesses.

Mrs Quarterly began work for Island Press Limited (a company that now falls under the MediaHouse umbrella) in March 1996 as the manager of a new quick print operation, PaperHouse.

She said: “This new division within the company provided an opportunity to learn printing technology and manufacturing and paved the way for my progress through several positions in the organization”

In 1998 PaperHouse and Island Press Limited merged and Mrs Quarterly became the director of sales & marketing.

Shortly thereafter, she was appointed publisher of Preview Magazine — now bermuda.com guide — where she worked until 2002.

Mrs Quarterly then moved on to create a new group human resources department within the Island Press Group of Companies.

She said: “In May 2005, the Island Press Group of Companies was renamed MediaHouse Limited to better reflect our diverse company holdings in Bermuda and throughout the Caribbean.”

The Bermuda Sun is one of the companies in the MediaHouse group.

Mrs Quarterly was appointed to the board of directors in August 2005 and in October 2006, was named executive vice president corporate operations.

Exceptional

She said: “Today, MediaHouse is a dynamic and diverse international communications company with businesses in Bermuda, the Caribbean and the United States covering commercial printing, newspapers, magazines, directories and Internet.

“It has been an exceptional experience to have worked with so many wonderful individuals throughout the MediaHouse organization during the past 15 years and I appreciate the opportunity given me to serve the company and its members.”

Mrs Quarterly said she will now devote more time to her restaurants, namely Chopsticks and Rosa’s Cantina.

Randy French, chairman and CEO of MediaHouse, said Mrs Quarterly had made a substantial and lasting contribution.

“Pam has a broad skill set and she used it effectively over the years as our companies, and the media industry as a whole, adjusted to the demands of heightened competition, consolidation and technical innovation.

“Her positive influence was felt in many spheres of our operation and her infectious enthusiasm helped to buoy us during the most challenging times and to savour our successes. We’re proud to have had Pam at MediaHouse and wish her every success and happiness in her future ventures.”
