“I couldn’t be happier to be back in my hometown reporting on health care, insurance, nonprofits and higher education,” Stanley said. “I’m looking forward to finding great stories and providing vital information to readers about these key industries in the Milwaukee area.”
Stanley is the latest addition to the BizTimes editorial team, which has changed dramatically during the past six months. In July, Andrew Weiland
was promoted to editor and Molly Dill
was promoted to managing editor. In August, former Milwaukee Business Journal reporter Corrinne Hess
joined BizTimes Milwaukee as the new real estate reporter. In late December, former Waukesha Freeman managing editor Arthur Thomas
joined the staff as the new manufacturing and technology reporter.
“We are really excited about the editorial team that we have put in place,” said Dan Meyer, publisher and owner of BizTimes Media. “Combined with our recently redesigned web site, our staff is eager to improve on our already strong news product.”
