MiBiz hires Burdette as associate publisher
MiBiz announced Monday that Justine Burdette has joined the company as associate publisher.
Burdette will work with the entire MiBiz team to build the organization’s editorial, sales, audience development and production operations. She’ll work closely with publisher Brian Edwards to boost the 33-year old publication’s efforts to provide business journalism in the Western Michigan region.
Previously, Burdette was a vice president at The Right Place Inc. and regional director for the Western Michigan office of the Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center. Prior to that, she worked for a national retail chain as training specialist and as a consultant specializing in performance-based learning.
“I’m excited to have Justine on the team,” Edwards said. “She’s deeply connected with the region’s manufacturing sector, which is the core of our coverage and our audience, but she also brings a breadth of experience in other industries and a track record in operations management, community engagement and talent development.”
With Burdette coming on board, Denise Montambo will be moving from associate publisher into the role of executive vice president of sales and business development with responsibility for driving ad revenues and consulting services.
