Stach succeeds Martin J. Ross III as publisher. In August, Ross was named to the new position of VP-managing director of events and business development.
Stach was previously global COO-consulting at Hewitt Associates, which was acquired by Aon Corp. in October. He was an executive at Orbitz Worldwide from 2004 to 2007.
“As a leader of a global business, he has walked in the shoes of many of our subscribers,” Christopher Crain, VP-group publisher of Crain Communications, said of Stach in a statement. “These talents, combined with his strategic experience and fresh thinking, will help make him a strong leader of the valued Business Insurance brand and its award-winning staff.”
Crain Communications also publishes BtoB.
