Virginia Business Celebrates 35 Years

Virginia Business Magazine 35 YearsVirginia Business Magazine is celebrating 35 years of delivering the Commonwealth's business news, and we congratulate four of our esteemed alumni who have been part of its success. From its humble beginnings, the Magazine was groundbreaking for its time and has since evolved to be the independent hub of Virginia's business news. “One of our big aims was to keep track as much as possible with things all over the state and travel the state as much as we could to make sure people knew we were interested in their part of the state,” Robert Powell ’08 explained. Robert served as the longest-serving editor from 2004 to 2019. In 2017 Bernie Niemeier ‘07 acquired the company, “I just think it’s really important for the commonwealth if we have a healthy, independent publication like Virginia Business that covers business on a statewide basis.”
