Joe Zwiebel, the founding publisher of the Hartford Business Journal, has stepped down from that position and as president of New England Business Media and sold his 50 percent stake in the parent company.

Zwiebel writes, “It is the right time for me to move on. The Hartford Business Journal and our other titles are in very capable hands.

“Peter Stanton remains as CEO, and Tom Curtin, who joined the Hartford Business Journal as chief revenue officer last October, has acquired my shares, taking a 50% ownership stake in the company.

“Tom will run New England Business Media’s Connecticut operations, assuming the role of president and publisher of Hartford Business Journal and New Haven Biz. He comes to the Connecticut marketplace with deep industry knowledge, a truly impressive track record, and perhaps most importantly, an unparalleled love of media, specifically the B2B space.

“He is capable, deeply committed and enthusiastic about driving what we have built to new heights.”
