Comspark About Us

LEAD Cincinnati is the online home of LeadTribune. Headquartered in Cincinnati, OH, we are one of Greater Cincinnati's hometown media companies, born and raised in the Queen City.

We were founded in 2010, in the middle of one of the worst economic climates we've ever seen. We published our first print magazine even as people were saying that print media was dead. Five years later, our company has grown 4,000 percent. We've expanded from a single magazine to a variety of media properties, and we're still growing!

The main magazine titles that we have created and own are Venue Magazine, Cincinnati's lifestyle and event guide, and LEAD Magazine, Cincinnati's b2b magazine for business executives. These magazines have the paper quality of an Architectural Digest and the look and feel of a product you'd find in a five-star hotel.

Our events present Greater Cincinnati residents awards for their contributions to our community. We have awards for entrepreneurship, innovation, technology, healthcare and C-level business executives. In 2015 we hosted our inaugural Bridal Event at Memorial Hall. At these events we've had many incredible speakers including Bob McDonald, Secretary of Veterans Affairs and former president and CEO of Procter & Gamble, John Barrett, president and CEO of Western & Southern Financial Group, and Santa Ono, president of the University of Cincinnati.

Our custom media projects have grown over the past five years. We do custom publishing for retirement communities, the wedding industry, the healthcare industry and insurance providers. We work for both family-owned businesses and Fortune 100 corporations. We work in cities throughout the continental United States, from Boston to New York City to Portland.

We also provide graphic design services. Our excellent graphic design team, led by graduates of Northern Kentucky University's prestigious School of the Arts (SOTA) program, produces brochures, posters, logos, banners and all kinds of collateral materials.

In 2015, we added to our digital media business by launching Here you'll find articles from our print publications and fresh content written just for the web.

We want to tell the story of Cincinnati's incredible revitalization through the eyes of the city's most deserving businesses, organizations, events and people. No story is too small to be featured, and that includes yours! We want to hear about it!

We welcome your feedback and questions, so please contact us!
