Allen Greenberg, former editor of the Colorado Springs Business Journal, has decided to stick around.
Greenberg has opened his own public relations and communications firm, Daily Planet PR.
His LinkedIn page says he's actually had the business since July 2009, about six months before he came to the Business Journal, where he worked until a few weeks ago. His departure coincided with the arrival of a new publisher.
He says in a release his firm provides services such as strategic communications planning, public relations, media relations, internal communications/employee relations and crisis communications to small and medium-sized businesses, associations and foundations. Greenberg says he'll focus on the defense, homeland security, amateur sports, health care, real estate and hospitality industries.
“The Pikes Peak region is home to so many really interesting emerging-growth companies and their stories need to be told properly,” Greenberg said in a release. “Daily Planet’s mission will be to help these businesses communicate with their stakeholders, enhance their images, reach new markets and grow.”
Daily Planet will be based in Colorado Springs but will work with clients along the Front Range and in surrounding states.
“The quality of life in this region is really unparalleled, and as the economy rebounds, new and exciting opportunities will present themselves to those who are ready,” Greenberg said. “Daily Planet will help these companies seize those opportunities.”
Greenberg has more than 20 years of experience in journalism, politics and business at the national, regional and state levels. He has worked at daily newspapers, online operations and weeklies in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia and Indianapolis. During his tenure as editor of the Business Journal, he says the paper emphasized small businesses, expanded coverage in the defense/aerospace and hospitality sectors, and re-engineered and expanded its social media and other digital initiatives.
The Business Journal's website doesn't list anyone in its editor slot.
