Medallion Acquires Triple Threat Mobile and Hires Executive Director of Technology

Aurora, Illinois—March 2012—Medallion Press, Inc., DBA Medallion Media Group, acquires Triple Threat Mobile Development and hires former CEO/Owner Brian Buck as their new Executive Director of Technology.

In a rapidly changing publishing industry, Medallion Media Group recognizes that being ahead of the curve is essential for a thriving future. This year Medallion will unveil a new state-of-the-art e-book platform, which Buck will oversee. Medallion Media Group President Adam Mock states, “The addition of Brian Buck allows us to explore greater opportunities and innovation in the digital landscape. His skill set and passion will help the Medallion brand break ground in new creative frontiers. We’re thrilled to have him as part of the team.”

Buck cofounded Triple Threat Mobile Development in 2009, a consulting agency specializing in custom applications for iPhone and mobile devices for various markets and industries. Prior to operating Triple Threat Mobile, Brian held software engineering positions for Fortune 500 companies including Oracle and Sun Microsystems, where he worked on several products and enterprise solutions. His twenty-year career experience ranges from development of CD-ROM–based multimedia products including educational games and entertainment apps, to website design and development, to consulting in the telecommunications industry.

“For the past two years I’ve had the pleasure of working for Medallion as an outside consultant,” Buck states. “Tasked to help define an amazing technology and product we believe will change how publishers and authors create digital content, I have seen our plans evolve into something much bigger. Although at this time we are unable to announce this technology, suffice to say, it made sense to come on board full-time as Executive Director of Technology. In my new role, I will continue to define this technology as a full-fledged product while also managing other internal multimedia projects. Medallion’s talented staff and nimbleness to adapt to changes in the industry are unparalleled, and I feel privileged to join the company. Look for some exciting announcements ahead.”
