Mike Russell founded American City Business Journals. Ray Shaw, the company's chairman from 1989 until his 2009 death, bought a controlling interest along with a partner in 1989, selling to Advance Publications in 1995. It was Russell who suggested Shaw buy the entire company rather than just a few journals. Under Shaw's leadership, the company moved from Kansas City, Missouri to Charlotte and greatly increased the number of its publications.[1]
