TROY, MI — Business News Publishing (BNP) announces the promotions of Taggart Henderson and John Conrad.

Henderson, who has served as publisher of The Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration News for the last two years, was promoted to president of the Building Division and Corporate Operations at BNP. Conrad was named the new publisher of The News.

“It has been a privilege to serve as publisher of The News for the last couple of years,” said Henderson. “Although I will continue to oversee The News along with several other BNP magazines, it is prudent for me to turn over the leadership of the magazine.”

Conrad was promoted from his position as Western Region Advertising Manager for The News. He has over 25 years of industry experience, including management positions at Rheem Manufacturing Company and various editorial and marketing positions on popular trade magazines. Conrad was previously publisher of The Wholesaler and HVAC Product News.

Conrad joined The News in 1998 as the Central Region advertising manager.

Conrad graduated from the University of Illinois with a BS Degree in Journalism and Com-munications in 1968.
