Jake is the founder and CEO of North American Journeys. In 1992, Steinman launched Active America, the forerunner to North American Journeys, following an 18-year career as publisher and editor-in-chief of City Sports, a 6-unit chain of regional sports and recreation travel magazines that he sold in 1993. In addition to his duties as president and C.E.O. of www.thetouroperator.com and North American Journeys, Steinman is the Editor-in-Chief of two industry newsletters—as well as Chairman of Active America Travel Summit, E-Tourism Summit, and NAJ Tour Operators Summits West and East.
Mr. Steinman joined the Board in 2009 and says of his experience, “I am a dog fanatic plain and simple; I cannot imagine a more endearing species of animal. One of the board members suggested that my experience in publishing and marketing might be of use to the SF SPCA in their efforts to become better known in the community.”
