From the Publisher - What a Journey!
When we started Westport Magazine in 1998, we knew we had a community that was endlessly interesting and ever-evolving. To grow a business here, we also recognized that we would have to be guided by two unwavering core principles: integrity and authenticity. We not only work here, we also live here.
What we produce matters as much as how we produce it, and because of your support, We have been the voice of these towns through the years.
We know that you have high standards from a publication that represents you. We are proud to honor that, not only in our editorial features, but also in how we approach our business. We understand that being part of the community means giving back by volunteering our time, sponsoring charitable events and evolving our products to move with the needs of those we serve. For example, since founding Westport Magazine, we started New Canaan• Darien Magazine; a shelter publication called atHome; the food section inGoodTaste; inFashion and Fairfield County Weddings. We also launched a website and created lots of community events, from fashion shows to our popular Best of the Gold Coast Connecticut party. Through it all, at heart we remain a family business with deep roots.
We are eternally grateful to the marquee advertisers who have shown us support through the years. They are the folks who believed in our vision and showed it by buying full-page ads in our very first issue. And they are still with us today. Thank you sincerely to: Betteridge; Country Living; Elsebe; Helen Ainson; J.P. Franzen Associates Architects; L.H. Gault & Son; Lillian August; Lux, Bond & Green; Mitchells; Manfredi Jewelers; Prudential CT Realty; Soleil Toile; William Pitt Real Estate; and William Raveis Real Estate.
We’ve enjoyed our past decade, and how much we have grown — and we are not done. You can expect more from us. The next ten years will unveil the big plans we have been developing at Moffly. Along the way, we will continue to honor our commitment to creating a magazine and a business that you will be proud to say is yours.
