Gomez Biography


Saturday Evening Post Board of Directors Appointment
Steve Frye just joined the Benjamin Franklin Society, Curtis Publishing Company and The Saturday Evening Post's Board of Directors. This appointment cummulates a 32 year professional history that began in 1978 when Steve was hired by The Saturday Evening Post as a Special Sections Art Director. Steve worked at Curtis Publishing through 1981 and held several positions, including director of Art & Production for The Country Gentleman magazine. Steve was nominated for the Board position by John Hauer, who also was the president of Steve's Alma Mater, the National College of Business, and was the person who recommended Steve as a production artist in 1978. Steve was ultimately hired due to this recommendation. The first assignment on the Board is to head up a full corporate audit. Steve is both honored and excited to again work with such a great historical publishing company and looks forward to helping preserve the archives of the oldest publications in the country.
