Jack Gannon, Co-Founder and Production Manager at YBR Publishing, LLC, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in publishing.

Backed by a Bachelor of Arts in communications from Winthrop University from 1983, Mr. Gannon spearheaded an eclectic career across publishing, journalism and more. After a summer as an intern reporter, he worked in circulation management at The Beaufort Gazette and The Island Packet for 24 years. During his career, he was part of the team that helped move the five-afternoons-per-week Gazette to a morning edition, and gradually adding Sunday and Saturday editions to both papers. Pivoting to the publishing industry after his retirement in 2011, since 2016 he has excelled as the co-founder, production manager, webmaster, and finance manager of YBR Publishing, LLC based in Ridgeland, South Carolina. In his role, Mr. Gannon works one-on-one with each author to create a distinctive visual signature in the book from cover to cover, a trademark style individual to each author with YBR Publishing. Likewise, he is the author and co-author of numerous written works.

Mr. Gannon’s love and affinity for writing date back to his youth, in which his father would ask him to fetch and read the daily newspaper. When he attended Fork Union Military Academy in Virginia, he joined the newspaper club where he learned how to write news and feature stories. In addition, Mr. Gannon and his best friend in high school, Cyndi Williams-Barnier, started writing novels and self-published their first book in 2012. From there, they created the Annual Arts and Literary Festival in Ridgeland, and eventually launched YBR Publishing. Presently, Mr. Gannon holds membership with the Greater Bluffton (South Carolina) Chamber of Commerce, Independent Book Publishers Association, and South Carolina’s Writers Association. Mr. Gannon also serves on the Liturgy Committee for St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Beaufort as its chairman and the proclaimer ministry chair.
