New Haven Biz names Bingham editor

Michael Bingham

A letter from New Haven Biz Editor Michael Bingham

To Our Readers:

June 25 marked my first day as editor of New Haven Biz. It's an exciting time for our organization and for me personally. It marks a much-anticipated return to business journalism in the city I have called home for more than two decades.

Compared to southern New England's other mid-sized cities — Springfield, Worcester, Providence, R.I. — New Haven is a different creature altogether. One might even say dramatically so. While the economies of cities like Hartford are built on century-old "legacy" industries such as insurance, New Haven proudly thrives on creative destruction and reinvention.

It always has. From Eli Whitney's cotton gin to A.C. Gilbert's Erector Set to New England's first technology incubator, New Haven has an unparalleled history as a hotbed of creativity, change and innovation.

For me, today represents a kind of coming home. I have practiced journalism here since the 1990s. As a founder and editor of a successful business publication I got to know well the people and organizations that define and energize our region. As creator of a monthly city magazine I was proud to edit what many regarded as the best magazine between New York and Boston.

Today, that's my mission statement for New Haven Biz — to bring our readers a publication that's as unique, vital and even unpredictable as the business community we cover and celebrate. Our promise is to inform, update and even, yes, to entertain. We're delighted and proud to have you along for the journey. I know it will be a rewarding one.

As always, I invite you to write to me at mbingham@newhavenbiz.com.
