Changing of the guard at New England Business Journals
John Dolan and Catherine Nelson have taken over as co-publishers of New England Business Journals Inc. with the production of the August editions of the Rutland, Valley and Champlain Business Journals, according to an article in the Barre-Montpelier Times Argus.
Richard Rohe has stepped down as publisher and Lillian Rohe as editor, though they will continue in those roles for Prime Time Journal, a quarterly publication for Vermonters over age 50.
In 2003, the Rohes sold New England Business Journals to Mitchell Community Media, which also owns the Rutland Herald and the Times Argus.
The Rohes started Rutland Business Journal in 1984. A year later, they started Valley Business Journal, which covers the Upper White River Valley in Vermont and New Hampshire. Champlain Business Journal, which covers the Burlington area and northwestern Vermont, was launched in 1996. All three Journals are published monthly.
Nelson and Dolan assumed the positions of co-publishers July 17. Nelson serves as marketing director, responsible for sales and business operations. Dolan is editor of the three Business Journals, responsible for editorial planning and assigning stories to more than 40 writers across the state.
Dolan had worked at the Rutland Herald for 23 years, serving in nearly every reporting and editing position in the newsroom. He held the position of managing editor for the past two years. A California native, he has lived in Vermont since 1971 and Brandon since 1987.
