Former HBJ Publisher Zwiebel named development director of Hartford nonprofit

Joe Zwiebel

Former Hartford Business Journal Publisher and owner Joseph Zwiebel is returning to the Hartford market in a new business development role with a local nonprofit. 
Zwiebel has been named director of development and communications for Hartford Promise, a nonprofit that provides college scholarships to Hartford students. 
“Joe is joining us at an important moment for our organization,” said Richard Sugarman, president of Hartford Promise. “Joe has made a big mark on the region in his 30 years running the Hartford Business Journal, and I’m thrilled about the range of skills and great reputation he brings to Hartford Promise.” 
Zwiebel founded the Hartford Business Journal in 1992, and went on to create HBJ’s parent company, New England Business Media in 2007. Zwiebel sold his interest in the company in June 2020, to current Publisher Tom Curtin. 
Most recently Zwiebel served as director of new product development for Business News, a regional business publisher headquartered in Perth, West Australia.
Hartford Promise provides individual students from Hartford Public high schools who have maintained a B average, had a 93% attendance rate, and resided in Hartford with up to $20,000 in scholarships to attend the college of their choice, along with providing the support services and key relationships that help lead to college success. 
There are currently 480 Hartford Promise scholars attending 90 different colleges all over the country.
