Phoenix Business Journal editor in chief Ilana Lowery has resigned after 23 years with the publication.
Angela Gonzales of the Business Journal writes, “‘I have thoroughly enjoyed the journey, and I am thankful that my time here has given me so much professional growth, professional friendship and pure satisfaction,’ she said. ‘Every day, I’ve been grateful for the opportunity to do good through the integrity of our journalism and through the impact of our community.’
“Lowery said she plans to take the summer to ponder her next move and spend quality time with her husband, Chris, and their Labrador Retriever, Harley. Her last day will be June 4.
“Lowery joined the Phoenix newspaper in 1995, covering banking and aviation. She quickly moved up the ranks to managing editor in 1999 and then editor in 2001, replacing Don Henninger when he was promoted to publisher. She was named editor-in-chief in 2012.”
