Crain's Editor Elizabeth McIntyre Named Interim Publisher, Campanelli's Future Uncertain

The current editor of Crain’s Cleveland Business, Elizabeth McIntyre, will now also serve as acting publisher. (Acting = at least until suspended publisher John Campanelli's indecent exposure charges are "reviewed internally.")  

It's unclear what Crain Communications VP and group publisher Mary Kramer intends to uncover in an internal review — A clearer picture of Campanelli's alleged "childhood trauma(s)," perhaps? And/or how precisely said trauma(s) came to manifest themselves in the exposing of one's genitals to women? — but she focused most of her comments on McIntyre when she made the announcement Thursday.

“We are fortunate that we have in Elizabeth such a high-quality leader with a deep knowledge of the Cleveland community, especially its business and civic culture,” Kramer said. “We know she can lead our team as it continues to serve our readership and our clients.”

McIntyre has been the editor of Crain's since April, 2014. Like Campanelli, she spent many years at the Plain Dealer in multiple roles. She went on to do some PR work for the Cleveland Foundation and then oversaw communications for the National Association of College Stores, based in Oberlin. 

Scene celebrated McIntyre's work at Crain's in a piece earlier this year. We considered her hiring one of the chief explanations for a renewed commitment to diversity in the pages of Cleveland's business publication.
