Brian Straight assumes role of Editor in Chief

FRAMINGHAM, MASS. — Brian Straight has joined Peerless Media’s Supply Chain Group as the new Editor in Chief of Supply Chain Management Review (SCMR).

Straight takes over the editorial reigns from Bob Trebilcock, a 40-year B2B editorial veteran who has overseen SCMR since taking over from Founding Editor Frank Quinn in 2013. The move allows Trebilcock to continue to concentrate on his role as Executive Editor of Modern Materials Handling, a publication he’s contributed to since 1984.

Straight was the founding editor of, and in 2021 launched a new title for FreightWaves called Modern Shipper, an effort that earned him a Jesse H. Neal Award for Best New Product in 2022. Prior to that experience, he spent nine years with Penton Media on Fleet Owner, overseeing both the monthly magazine and website operations.

“Brian not only comes to Peerless Media with solid B2B magazine management experience, but he also brings an extremely strong logistics and freight transportation coverage background with him,” said Michael Levans, Group Editorial Director of Peerless Media’s Supply Chain Group. “We’re thrilled to have Brian join Peerless Media and drive the editorial vision for SCMR into the future.”

“I’m very thankful for the opportunity afforded me to lead the SCMR brand,” said Straight. “As just the third Editor in Chief in the publication’s history, I’m honored to be trusted with the responsibility to shepherd SCMR forward and continue the great legacy that Bob and Frank created.”

Brian joined the staff on Tuesday, January 3, 2023, and can be reached at
