New Jersey Business magazine announced this morning Vincent Schweikert has been promoted to vice president and publisher of the monthly magazine of the New Jersey Business & Industry Association.
Schweikert replaces Phillip Battista, who will retire after 35 years at the magazine, the last seven of which he served as publisher. Battista’s resignation was first reported on NJBIZ.com in August. Schweikert’s promotion is effective Oct. 1. He has spent 23 years at the magazine, where he has held positions of increasing responsibility, according to the NJBIA.
“Vincent is both detail-oriented and creative, and has led the magazine’s drive into digital media,” said NJBIA’s president, Philip Kirschner, in the announcement. “He also has superior skills in sales and marketing … and is responsible for much of its success.”
