David and Vicki Legge, new co-publishers of the Caymanian Compass, have lived in the Cayman Islands for 23 years. Originating from the United States, the Legges were granted Caymanian status many years ago.
The Legges are perhaps best known in Cayman for publishing Grand Cayman Magazine as well as organising high-profile and worthwhile charitable events, including the annual Outstanding Service Awards for the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service.
A graduate of Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, David began his career in publishing as a reporter with the Orlando Sentinel before moving to the St. Petersburg Times. He later joined the staff of The Washington Post where he spent eight years as a reporter and editor.
From The Washington Post he moved to Newsweek magazine (which the Washington Post Company owned) to learn the business side of publishing.
He later edited several major magazines in Texas where he wrote a best-selling book titled “Self-Made in America: Plain Talk for Plain People About the Meaning of Success”.
Vicki, a native Houstonian, graduated with a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Texas and a master’s degree in education. She is a former high school English teacher and successful entrepreneur.
Vicki entered the publishing world with her husband, David, when they came to Grand Cayman in 1990 to edit the venerable Newstar Magazine. Together they started the high-quality Cayman Executive Magazine before branching out on their own, forming Pinnacle Publishing & Marketing Ltd.
Vicki has served as publisher, advertising sales director, and creative director of Grand Cayman Magazine.
