Kira Lafond

Market President/Publisher, Milwaukee Business Journal

Kira Lafond, became Market President and Publisher of Milwaukee Business Journal in July. She oversees a team of talented editorial, events, audience development and marketing professionals who work every day to help their readers grow their businesses, advance their careers and simplify their professional lives. Prior to becoming Publisher Kira served as the Milwaukee Business Journal Director of Advertising for two years. She spent the balance of her 30+ year career in radio sales and management where she led teams of as many as 100 to financial success. Kira never expected to leave radio, but when the opportunity to lead the Milwaukee Business Journal team came up, she jumped at it. “There is a magic that happens when business people engage with MBJ. We keep them informed, educate them on the latest developments in their careers and most importantly, we connect them with other professionals they can do business with.”
