Beginning as a market researcher, McGovern created Computerworld in 1967 as a vehicle to bring together computer manufacturers and their prospective customers. With the rapid success of this publication, McGovern went on to publish more than 60 magazines and trade journals. By focusing on international expansion, creating an industry conference series, and publishing a vast array of training manuals, McGovern has built a $2 billion business.
