Former Publisher Randy Loeser to assume new leadership role at Babcox Media.

Babcox Media, Inc. is pleased to announce that Scott Shriber, Group Publisher, will be assuming responsibility for the Engine Builder brand, effective Oct. 1, 2018.

Shriber began his automotive career 47 years ago in an engine remanufacturing shop and says he is excited to re-immerse himself into the market.

“I started my career in a machine shop in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, and have had a passion for engines and all things automotive ever since,” said Shriber. “My entire professional journey has been in the automotive industry. To get back to the specific market that creates the heart of the vehicle is fantastic.”

Doug Kaufman will continue in his role as Publisher, Editor and as an unwavering advocate for the professionals employed in the industry.
