Fournier named editor/publisher of Crain’s Detroit
Journalist Ron Fournier, who earlier was named editor, has been named publisher of Crain’s Detroit Business.
A story on its website states, “Kramer recruited Fournier to Crain’s four months ago, naming him associate publisher as part of her succession planning. She will remain with Crain’s as group publisher, consulting with Fournier and his team on major revenue initiatives such as the Detroit Homecoming and Crain’s Leadership Academy.
“As publisher and editor, Fournier will be responsible for sales, audience development and editorial operations of Crain’s Detroit Business.
“‘This is such an exciting time for Crain’s Detroit Business and the city of Detroit,’ said KC Crain, executive vice president of Crain Communications Inc. ‘We couldn’t be happier to have Ron take over the publisher role. His experience will continue to position Crain’s as the go-to news brand for the city.’
“In the last half of 2016, Fournier worked with Kramer to reorganize Crain’s newsroom, focusing its best reporters on high-end enterprise reporting to deepen Crain’s coverage while building a breaking news team to broaden it. Kramer named him editor and associate publisher after they implemented the plan, which also shifts resources from print to digital platforms.”
