YARMOUTH, Maine—Sarah Flanagan returns to United Publications and Security Systems News as publisher, where she will oversee sales, marketing, audience development and circulation. Flanagan has more than 20 years of successful sales experience in print, digital, e-media and trade events, most recently working as sales manager for Security Sales & Integration and Campus Safety.

Flanagan will work closely with United Publications' President, Rick Rector, who will transition into retirement in early 2020, and VGM Group (SSN’s new parent company) to help build SSN’s brand and reputation as the security industry’s most trusted news source.

“I’m thrilled to be back at United Publications working with and helping to guide the extremely talented team at Security Systems News,” Flanagan said. “This is a time of fast-moving technological convergence, connectedness and advancement in security, and SSN is well positioned with our new parent company and our newly named editorial board to grow and expand our offerings in the industry.”

Flanagan will officially begin work on November 4th, and can be reached in the interim at sflanagan@securitysystemsnews.com. She will also be attending the ISC East security conference in November along with the SSN team.

“I’m looking forward to seeing a lot of familiar industry faces at ISC East in a few short weeks,” she said.
