Ray Shaw, American City Business Journals

Published on .

Where: American City Business Journals
Why:Following Shaw's retirement in 1989 from Dow Jones & Co., where he had been president-COO, his Shaw Publishing Co. acquired control of American City Business Journals, which had 21 business weeklies at the time. That count was nearly doubled in 1995 when Advance Publications purchased ACBJ and added 20 more titles. The company's business journals now serve 4 million readers, and Bizjournals, the online version of ACBJ, attracts 8 million unique visitors monthly.
