Norm Kamikow, Founder of CLO Magazine, Passes Away

Norm Kamikow, President and Editor-in-Chief at MediaTec Publishing, Inc, passed away unexpectedly on July 14. He was our friend and colleague, and he was instrumental in our profession’s growth and in building our community. If you don’t recognize the name, Norm is the person who started Chief Learning Officer magazine in 2002 and started the semi-annual CLO Symposia in 2004. He oversaw the Human Capital Media Group, the company’s portfolio of media properties focused on human capital management, including Chief Learning Officer, Diversity Executive, Talent Management, and Workforce magazines along with live and virtual industry events. Some may have thought that a publication like Chief Learning Officer magazine and an event like the CLO Symposium have always been around. But, of course, they have not. Someone had to have the idea and the courage to create them and then nurture and grow them to become the successes they are today. Someone had to make all of this happen. That someone was Norm.
