Vivan joined Source Media Group in January 2016, bringing with her a wealth of publication design experience, including having been Art Director of Dream Homes magazine.

I’m having more and more fun all the time.” In her spare time, she loves to swim and enjoy the nature and traveling around the world with her family.

NORMA ROBERTSON
Publisher/Co-Founder
  •    

Selling ads for a local real estate publication back in 2003, a light bulb went off. She knew she could sell a better magazine herself, and she continues to do so today. Source Media Group was born out of her home in Cranston, which we obviously grew out of. Four moves and many employees later Source Media Group still delivers some of Alberta’s most reader-friendly magazines. 

RICHARD MACQUARRIE
Publisher/Co-Founder
  •  

Sitting at his desk and keeping our lights on is Richard.  As co-founder of Source Media Group, he wanted to build a company based on trust, hard work, innovation and desire.  As our self-proclaimed Chandler Bing, he says no one really knows what he does, but whatever it is, it works.
