Pat Lottier is the publisher and chief executive officer of Atlanta Tribune: The Magazine, the award winning, monthly, business oriented magazine covering metropolitan Atlanta's African American community. When she became publisher her commitment was to produce a high quality newsmagazine for Atlanta’s African American community, believing then and now that black people both deserve and appreciate such a product. Since the purchase of the newsmagazine in 1987, Lottier has restructured and expanded the publication's staff, enhanced its layout and design, extended the scope of news coverage and overseen a dramatic increase in subscriptions.
Under Lottier’s leadership, the staff of Atlanta Tribune has been finalists and won journalism awards from the Atlanta Association of Black Journalists (1987-2007) and Atlanta Association of Media Women. In 1998, Goizueta Business School of Emory University awarded Atlanta Tribune the Media Public Service Award.
