Kilian Schalk of Purple Gray worked as an editorial consultant who guided America through updates and a transition from America magazine to America Media. He was vital at helping the organization to streamline workflow, make processes more efficient, and helping create a more flexible platform neutral approach that allowed them to create content for print, web, audio and video in a much more streamlined fashion. Kilian will present with Maurice Timothy Reidy, Executive Editor of America Media.


Kilian Schalk uses coaching, workshops, and interim management to help publishers and content teams adapt to a changing world. He and his company, PurpleGray enable clients’ existing staff to work across silos, identify and leverage opportunities within their own workflows, and introduce Continuous Improvement techniques to make change stick. Kilian’s deep commitment to staff development, as well as his appreciation for how fear blocks innovation and refusal to accept projects designed to reduce headcount, flows from his relationship with Condé Nast, where as Managing Editor for Editorial Development he helped define and implement cultural change across eighteen titles, and eleven years at the New Yorker, where as Technical Director of Digital Projects he was integral to the launch of the magazine’s redesign, website, digital archive, and kindle, nook, Audible, and iPad editions. He was also the youngest Production Manager in Rolling Stone history. 


In 2015-16, he spearheaded America Media’s ‘Moonshot’ effort to “Lead the Conversation about Faith and Culture” in the digital age. Results included a new website, a redesigned print magazine, transition from a subscription to a membership model, relocated offices, and a spike in readers across media.

Maurice Timothy Reidy joined America's staff in October 2006 and served as online editor before becoming executive editor. Tim helps direct America’s daily news coverage and currently edits the magazines Ideas section. He is also an occasional on-air host of “America This Week” on SiriusXM. Before joining America he worked at the Hartford Courant, a newspaper in Connecticut, and Commonweal magazine. In addition to writing for America, he has contributed to The New York Times, the Columbia Journalism Review and the Princeton Alumni Weekly. He has been interviewed about the Catholic Church on WNYC in New York, ABC, Bloomberg TV and other media outlets. Tim also serves on the board of directors of Jesuit Refugee Service USA.
