Alex Orfinger returns to Washington Business Journal as publisher and market president.
According to WBJ, Orfinger led the Washington Business Journal for 18 years before moving into a corporate position with parent company American City Business Journals in the fall of 2014. He will still continue in his role as executive vice president of ACBJ, leading several of the company’s programs, including the Business Journal Leadership Trust. “But when the opportunity arose to assume what he has considered his favorite job in a 28-year career with ACBJ, he said he couldn’t refuse. He takes the reins from predecessor Peter Abrahams.”
“What we do is more important than ever as business communities face so many challenges,” Orfinger said. “These challenges are magnified by recent events. We can help businesses and business owners navigate the equal challenges of economic recovery from Covid-19, systemic racism and ensuring opportunity for all.”
Before joining the Washington Business Journal, Orfinger had stints as publisher of the Dallas Business Journal and associate publisher of the Atlanta Business Chronicle — both sister papers. In his corporate capacity, he created and led efforts to grow audience and diversify revenue for the company.
