Hartford, CT - After an intensive national search, the Hartford Business Journal is pleased and proud to announce the formation of a new editorial management team. The search was undertaken when current Editor Norm Bell announced his departure in late June to relocate to Las Vegas, where he and his wife own a home.
Starting July 1, Greg Bordonaro, Brad Kane and Greg Seay will take over as Editor, Managing Editor and News Editor, respectively.
“We decided to back the home team,” said Hartford Business Journal Publisher Gail Lebert. “We had some fantastic outside candidates with great experience at prestigious media organizations, but we decided the very best opportunity for the Hartford Business Journal was the talented, experienced individuals we already had.”
Greg Bordonaro, who takes over as Editor, joined Hartford Business Journal in 2008, serving as a reporter covering health care, banking and finance, and real estate. In August, Bordonaro, who previously wrote for the Hartford Courant, will receive his MBA from the University of Hartford.
Brad Kane, who will step into the role of Managing Editor, joined Hartford Business Journal in 2010, serving as a reporter covering energy, manufacturing, and construction. He also serves as the Editor of Connecticut Green Guide, a quarterly statewide publication focusing on sustainable business.
Greg Seay, who will move into the News Editor chair, joined Hartford Business Journal in 2008, serving as Web Editor, overseeing HartfordBusiness.com. Previously, he served as a business reporter and editor for the Hartford Courant from 1992 to 2007.
“We simply could not be happier about how things have turned out, and we expect great things from this newly configured editorial team,” said HBJ Founding Publisher and President Joe Zwiebel. “These are the guys have done great work over the past many years, and we expect they will have a larger impact on the Greater Hartford business community in these new roles.”
