Our Story

Priority One Clearing Services (P-1) was founded by President/CEO Dawn Daugherty. Dawn has been in the publishing industry for over 30 years. As the former VP/GM of Publisher Relations and Agency Relations During with Special Data Processing/National Publishers Exchange, she has shown her dedication with the acquisition, management and new business development of over 1,000 subscription agents at SDP/NPE.

Dawn’s entrepreneurial spirit and understanding of the needs of publishers drove her to create a premier subscription agent clearing business, Priority One, in 2008. P-1 is dedicated to high ethics and a commitment of high-quality service to every magazine publisher or agent that utilizes the magazine-processing center. Her son, JC followed in her footsteps after graduating from Mercer University, and helped to launch Priority One along her side. JC has since left Priority One and began a career in construction, receiving his General Contractor’s license in Florida.

Priority One Clearing Services is a magazine subscription clearinghouse that has proven to be a leader in the magazine fulfillment industry.
