Lisa Rudy, the publisher of Crain’s Grand Rapids Business, writes about its launch after Crain Communication bought the Grand Rapids Business Journal and MiBiz and combined the two.
Rudy writes, “At the time of those acquisitions, we pledged our commitment to giving our readers and our business partners the most comprehensive news and information about the Grand Rapids region.
“While we have maintained operations at both publications for the past several months as we prepared for the introduction of Crain’s Grand Rapids Business, today marks the dawn of a new era in which we operate as one brand and we can truly begin to deliver on our promise.
“Our readers will find best-in-class coverage of the West Michigan business community. Our Grand Rapids-based reporting and editing team will offer a wide range of stories and information vital to staying on top of the latest developments and current trends. Readers will find a particular focus on important topics such as real estate, health care, manufacturing, finance, technology, as well as restaurants and the food industry.”
