Memphis Business Journal names new publisher
Joanna Crangle has been named publisher of the Memphis Business Journal, succeeding Stuart Chamblin, who is retiring effective March 31.
A story on its website states, “Crangle joined the Memphis Business Journal as circulation director in August 2006 and had been advertising director since June 2008. During her tenure as circulation director, Memphis hit its paid subscriber budget for the first time since American City Business Journals bought the Memphis paper in the mid-1990s. While she was ad director, the business journal beat its ad revenue budget for the first time.
“‘This is an incredibly exciting time to be a part of this industry, a dynamic and evolving multi-media business news platform,’ Crangle says. ‘It is an incredible honor for me to lead and serve this great company of ours and while we have seen success, we are thirsty for more. As we continue in this new phase of our journey together, I am thrilled to take on this challenge and look forward to what the future may bring.’
“Prior to joining ACBJ, Crangle was with American Honda and the Hendrick Automotive Group.”
