Sam Barer -- Founder and Editor-In-Chief

Apex was founded in 2002 by current Editor-In-Chief Sam Barer. Sam's writing career started early and
unexpectedly when he scripted a local television advertisement at the age of ten. He continued his not-so-typical
path by taking his Marketing degree to D.C. and serving as a legislative correspondent for Members of Congress. After
quickly identifying the disparity between pay and bills (and learning that the honor of working in the US Capital building
and eighty cents buys a bag of chips,) a career shift was executed to do product marketing work in telecommunications, which
resulted in being tasked with building one of the first regional Internet companies -- a job that included writing and voicing radio ads.
Soon Sam was on his way to direct product and online marketing at a Web software start-up, which led to a series of larger titles with
better compensation packages for increasingly higher-profile corporations. Suffering burn-out from years in the game and fear of permanent
brain damage caused by memorizing thousands of industry TLAs (three-letter-acronyms), Sam pulled the rip chord as the brink of the tech
bust came into view.
After leaving the high-tech world behind on his own terms, Sam vowed to spend more time working in areas reflecting his passions and
leveraging the writing skills he had honed. As a life-long car nut, Sam formed Apex Marketing Strategy to provide content and writing
services with an emphasis on automotive topics. Apex is credited with a diverse range of freelance writing and marketing projects, but is
best known for "Sound Classics" -- a weekly collector car feature syndicated to newspapers and web sites. Aside from automotive and
transportation issues, Apex has extensive experience writing and researching health, technology, business, music, and current event topics.

Apex's Writing, Research and Photojournalism Team
Joining Sam at Apex are writers, photographers and automotive experts
who have the background and knowledge to attack any project. No bloggers posing as journalists here -- Apex features a professional staff
with decades of experience. Our senior editors were publishing automotive newspaper content before Ferrari started equipping disc brakes,
meaning the Apex team saw history as it unfolded, got to know the big names when they were just starting out and witnessed the trends as
they happened. Most importantly, unlike many other content providers, our staff received education from the nation's leading universities
and has critical training in areas as diverse as business, law, insurance, mechanics, and history as to understand the impact of any issue,
be it automotive or otherwise, on society.
