Denver Biz Journal publisher is promoted within ACBJ
Pete Casillas, publisher of the Denver Business Journal, will be expanding his geographic oversight within parent company American City Business Journals to include multiple other markets along with Denver.
Rebecca Troyer of the Business Journal writes, “The new position, vice president of local markets, becomes effective Sept. 15. Casillas and the company are beginning the search for a new DBJ publisher immediately.
“ACBJ, based in Charlotte, N.C., is the nation’s largest publisher of local business news and data, with 43 different city business journals stretching from Hawaii to Miami. ACBJ is owned, in turn, by Advance Publications of New York, with titles including The New Yorker, Vogue, Architectural Digest, and others.
“With this move, Casillas becomes one of four publishers within ACBJ with multi-market oversight. The other publications Casillas will oversee, beyond DBJ, have not been determined yet, but will be within the next several weeks. Casillas will remain in Denver and based in the DBJ offices.
“‘I am so proud of the Denver Business Journal’s strong and important place in this community, now in our 70th year of operation, and I’m more committed than ever to continuing its momentum,’ Casillas said.”
