New publisher named at Fort Worth Business Press
Banks Dishmon has been named the new publisher of the Fort Worth Business Press, which was sold last year to Brown Publishing, according to a story on the paper’s Web site.
John-Laurent Tronche wrote, “The Frisco native previously has managed news publications in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and most recently served as corporate vice president of sales and marketing at KPC Media Group Inc. in Fort Wayne, Ind. Dishmon oversaw the creation and management of several publications at KPC, including the Fort Wayne Business Weekly.
“Brown Publishing Co. CEO Roy Brown, whose Tipp City, Ohio-based company owns the Business Press, said Dishmonâ€™s experience in starting and running publications is a perfect fit for the Fort Worth paper.
“‘Banks is a native Texan and has been a publisher of leading publications in the D/FW market for more than 20 years,’ Brown said. ‘He has a national reputation as a top-flight manager of information businesses and â€“ supported by the team at the Business Press â€“ we look forward to helping Banks create the kind of innovative, industry-leading business publication the Fort Worth area deserves.'”
