About CBJ

On July 26, 2004, Corridor Business Journal published the first edition of its weekly business magazine for the Cedar Rapids / Iowa City Corridor. Every week since then, the CBJ has provided its readers with comprehensive coverage of local business news and analysis. We cover news that is of interest, use and importance for anyone who does business in the growing Cedar Rapids and Iowa City Corridor. CBJ is not part of a chain. The newspaper is owned and operated independently by John and Aspen Lohman.

A portion of each issue is dedicated to one sector of the business community. Among many other focus issues, these topics range from diversity to small business, to politics & elections and banking. We also publish a host of supplemental materials.

In an effort to highlight the thriving business community in the Corridor and the people that make it happen, CBJ also hosts a series of events throughout the year that are designed to honor the Corridor’s Women of Influence and Forty Under 40, a group of forty young professionals who are making a difference in the Corridor. CBJ also hosts the annual Corridor Economic Forecast luncheon and the Fastest Growing Companies event.

The Corridor Business Journal is committed to representing, appreciating and elevating all who are a part of our community. We celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion in company leadership, organizations we support, award recipients, and voices we seek to share information. Click here for more information.
