It is our pleasure to warmly welcome Mike Balzano as the new group publisher of R&R.

Balzano brings over 25 years of media experience to the role and has been with BNP Media since 2013, including the last six years as associate publisher of SNIPS. He has also been promoted to group publisher of The Driller, REMTEC & Emerging Contaminants Summit, and SNIPS.

“I am humbled and honored to be tasked with continuing the tradition of service that R&R has provided for our great industry for so many years,” Balzano said. “We will never lose focus of our primary goal, to provide timely and relevant information to our audience, information that will enable them to run their businesses more efficiently, which in turn helps the entire industry grow.”

The transition in leadership comes as Sarah Harding, group publisher since 2017, has been promoted to group publisher of sister BNP publications The ACHR NEWS, Engineered Systems and Mission Critical.

"It has been my privilege and honor to lead R&R as publisher," Harding said. "It has been a time of change for the publishing industry and we at R&R have been at the forefront with a fantastic team that is focused on our readers and advertisers. I look forward to many more years as an avid reader and fan of this industry. Thank you for the relationships and continued support we have built through these years. It is bittersweet, but I can ensure that you will be in great hands!" 

Balzano looks forward to helping clients grow their businesses. Please don't hesitate to reach out to him with any questions via the contact information below:
