Indianapolis Business Journal president leaving after 30 years

February 12, 2010

Chris Katterjohn, the president of IBJ Media, announced Friday morning that he will leave the company at the end of February, according to a story by Chris Olson on the Indianapolis Business Journal’s site.

Olson writes, “Katterjohn, 59, has spent 30 years with the company, including 20 as publisher of Indianapolis Business Journal, and was the first employee hired by Jim and Nancy Cotterill, former publishers who helped found the publication in 1980.

“IBJ Media’s holdings include the flagship IBJ and the Web site ibj.com, as well as the Indiana Lawyer and Court & Commercial Record. The company also has a custom publishing division.

“Katterjohn said he has no specific plans but intends to take some time off before considering his options.

“‘I just felt that it was time for me to move on,’ he said. ‘It’s been a great 30 years, and it’s been great to see what the IBJ has become.'”
