David Lavigne, operations director for North of Boston Media Group, has been named one of Editor & Publisher magazine's "E&P Production All-Stars for 2013."
A feature in the magazine's January issue honors Lavigne and four others for the "leadership and business savvy of these Production All-Stars that sets them apart from the field."
Lavigne oversees publication of four CNHI daily newspapers - The Eagle Tribune of North Andover, Mass., The Salem News, Gloucester Daily Times and Daily News of Newburyport - on a Goss Metro press at a production facility in North Andover.
Lavigne and his team publish several weekly newspapers and numerous other publications, as well.
Jim Falzone, general manager in North Andover, praised Lavigne for his detailed knowledge of many aspects of the operation, including systems that support online and mobile advertising production. He also credits Lavigne with forging partnerships such as a joint effort to produce a total-market-circulation product with the Boston Globe.
