About Us

McMahon Group is a 45-year-old, family-owned medical publisher of clinical newspapers and specialty periodicals, and creates compelling medical education programs and custom publications.


The McMahon Group sales staff is responsible for obtaining advertisements for the company’s print and digital properties, and securing funding to support a variety of forms of medical educational projects. The sales staff travels nationally and occasionally internationally in support of these efforts. A major focus of the sales staff is to provide excellent customer service to the clients who put their trust in the efficacy of our publications.


The production staff is tasked with a variety of jobs that together allow editorial to be produced and disseminated. For instance, they lay out the ad and editorial pages in a publication and negotiate with printers for the use of a certain weight of paper for use as cover stock. The production staff helps manage the flow of publications and projects through the various stages of development, and also arranges circulation specifics.

Information Technology

The IT staff oversees the digital world of publishing. The company’s many websites are constantly evolving, as are the company’s intranet sites, which include such destinations as the content management system, human resources and web tracking information. The IT staff also oversees the design and implementation of regular e-newsletters, website development, and creation of apps and digital editions.


The art/graphics staff is responsible for creating a successful visual interface between the editorial and reader. The graphics must help illustrate the editorial without distracting from it. The art should be pleasing to the eye and demonstrate an appropriate level of expertise. The graphics staff oversees all print and digital art direction, and also supplies creative services to sponsoring companies, such as logo and packaging design.


The editorial staff is divided into three groups: Publishing, Special Projects, and Copy Editing.

The publishing staff oversees the creation of editorial for both the print publications and their affiliated websites, and is also responsible for creating video and podcasts for use on the websites. The editors travel nationally and occasionally internationally to cover important medical meetings.

The projects staff works closely with the sales staff, the sponsoring company and the clinician-authors to create print and digital medical education that is authoritative, up-to-date, thoroughly referenced and unbiased.

The copy editing staff is tasked with reviewing and fact checking all work from both the publishing and projects editorial groups.


The finance staff keeps close track of expenses and revenues, which are updated daily, and creates reports for publication teams and managers that look both retrospectively at records from the past and prospectively at what is likely for the future. The finance department is also charged with overseeing information for use in tax statements.

The Story of McMahon Group

Amazon, Apple, Disney and Google all have corporate histories that began in a garage. One or more determined people batted around an idea until something worked, and in these examples, something really big indeed worked, so that today they are giants of American industry.

Add to that list of garage startups McMahon Group, a medical publisher now in its fifth decade, which while not necessarily a household name is nonetheless highly influential in shaping medical knowledge and education.

Raymond E. McMahon founded McMahon Group in 1972 with just five staffers. An advertising sales executive at the time, Mr. McMahon proposed creating a new publication focused on the medical professionals in the operating room, but this idea was rejected by his employers. That rejection was the impetus to start his own publishing company, in his garage, and create his first publication, a bimonthly journal called Surgical Team. As part of the surgical team, anesthesiologists and surgeons have been a focus of the company from the very beginning.

Over the ensuing years the company, now in its fifth decade, has grown considerably, becoming today one of the nation’s largest family-owned medical publishers, with about 75 employees and annual sales between $16 and $20 million amid continued profitability

Whereas Raymond McMahon continues as CEO of the company, a second generation of family members is now fully involved in day-to-day operations: Michele McMahon Velle is creative director and husband Van Velle is president of the company; Matt McMahon serves as general manager; Michael McMahon is business director of Custom Media; and remaining partners Rosanne McMahon and Lauren McMahon Smith assist in business administration.

Most of the newsmagazines published by McMahon Group are also the best-read in their specialties, as measured by syndicated readership studies. The combined circulation of McMahon publications is approximately 400,000 doctors and pharmacists. In addition, McMahon has adapted to the ever-evolving media landscape with a full line of digital media formats, including mobile responsive websites, e-newsletters, multimedia videos and audio podcasts, and iPad apps.

McMahon Group is composed of:

  • McMahon Publishing, which covers important medical news through its influential publications;
  • Applied Clinical Education, which develops educational initiatives designed to optimize the professional performance of clinicians;
  •, an internet-based source of continuing medical education for health care professionals;
  • McMahon Custom Media, which creates customized content to promote the marketing goals of hospital systems and brand managers; and
  • McMahon Special Projects, which partners with the medical industry to create educational promotional programs for clinicians.

Every year, the McMahon Group comes together as a company to review the previous year, noting the achievements of its various departments as well as the company as a whole. For the McMahon Group, 2017 proved to be successful in many ways—all of which was made possible by the efforts of its accomplished staff.

The company’s annual celebration highlights the work of a few outstanding employees. We thank them and the many other employees at McMahon Group for their hard work, and we also thank our readers for their continued enthusiasm for our medical journalism, which has made many of our publications the most-read in their specialties.
