Doug Akers, Tim McRae, and James Combs are the veterans of the company. In fact, they’ve been there since Akers Media Group opened in July 2008. The other three men—Michael Gaulin, Volkan Ulgen, and Douglas Tyler—have played an invaluable role in elevating the magazine’s covers and inside spreads, as well as enhancing the company’s website.
“I’m very proud to work alongside such a talented group of men,” says James Combs, staff writer. “We work well together and really feed off each other. But beyond that, we all share a passion for creating a top-notch publication.”
