Crain Communications publishes 30 weekly business and trade magazines including Advertising Age, Automotive News, Modern Healthcare, Investment News, Staffing Industry Analysis and Waste and Recycling News. It also publishes city business magazines for New York, Chicago, Cleveland and Detroit.

The company was founded in Louisville, KY in 1916 by G.D. Crain, Jr. with a staff of three people and two publications...first publishing Class (subsequently renamed and published by the company today as BtoB) and Hospital Management (a magazine for hospital administrators, which was sold during the 1950s). The tiny staff moved to Chicago later in 1916. In 1930, Crain launched Advertising Age, which has become the international newspaper of marketing and advertising and the company's flagship publication.

The company remains a family affair with descendants Keith Crain as Chairman of the company and Rance Crain as President. Mary Kay Crain is Treasurer.


Crain Communications offers excellent benefits for employees including profit-sharing 401(k) plan and year-end bonuses.

Other benefits include medical, dental, disability and life insurance as well as paid time off with holiday, vacation and personal time.
