Austin Business Journal publisher Lyn Chasteen has announced her retirement from the American City Business Journals paper.

Austin editor Colin Pope writes, “Chasteen, who has led the paper as publisher for the past 14 years, spent 20 years with ABJ’s parent company, Charlotte, N.C.-based American City Business Journals, including stints at the Dallas and Jacksonville business journals.

“A search for her replacement has been launched.

“Chasteen said she is leaving the paper to pursue her ‘next great adventure.’

“‘I’ve had the pleasure of working with a great staff and appreciate the opportunity I’ve had to connect with some of the brightest minds in our business community,’ Chasteen said. ‘The ABJ is privileged to have been awarded several prestigious awards in the past decade — including one for general excellence this year — and we’re looking at our seventh straight year of subscriber growth. I look forward to reading the ABJ online and in print to keep me on top of local business news.'”
