FOR THE TIME BEING: Alpha Media Group has tapped Paul Miller as interim chief executive officer until it can hire a permanent leader for Maxim, maxim.com, Blender.com and its TV-film production arm, AMG Moving Pictures. Miller doesn’t have publishing experience, having been the executive chairman of firearms conglomerate Freedom Group. But he does have a technology background — prior to Freedom Group, he served as chief operating officer of Velocita Wireless and SkyOnline. Alpha Media ceo Stephen Duggan stepped down from the company in September, just a year after he took over the top role. Alpha Media was formed after Quadrangle Group purchased the media assets from Felix Dennis for a reported $250 million; the company is now overseen by a board of directors that includes representatives from Cerebus Capital after a recapitalization of the company’s debt in July.
