Adams Publishing announces change in top Wisconsin leadership


Adams Publishing Group has announced that longtime executive Mary Jo Villa is stepping aside from a leadership role she has held for more than two decades in Janesville, Wisconsin.

Adams has hired Orestes Baez, a newspaper industry veteran, as the new president of the southern Wisconsin group. Baez comes to Wisconsin after working for two years as the regional vice president of Gannett-owned local newspapers in Michigan.

Baez now takes the helm of a region that includes several weekly and daily newspapers, including The Gazette, the Beloit Daily News, the Watertown Daily Times, the Daily Jefferson County Union, and the commercial printing plant Adams operates in Janesville.
