Ed Sealover, a senior reporter for the Denver Business Journal, is leaving the publication after 14 years.

Sealover writes, “I landed at the DBJ 14 years ago when the man that I consider one my mentors, former editor Neil Westergaardrescued me from joblessness as my former paper, the Rocky Mountain News, shut down. I’d been a government reporter all my life, and I didn’t know net revenue from gross revenue or an earnings report from a report card. But Neil saw something in me that led him to believe that I could tell the stories that mattered to you.

“I dove into things I’d never covered before — hotels, restaurants, retail, airlines — and learned that what was important were the lessons that could be sponged by other job creators from the successes and failures of their peers. I inherited the health care beat when our reporter on that topic took a new job the week that the Affordable Care Act passed, and my first assignment was to explain that little bill to our readers. Eventually, I shed health care and retail and picked up economic development, transportation and outdoor recreation — and every nuance I learned about how companies in those sectors operated was something that brought me satisfaction.

“Along the way, I focused on the subject that fascinated me the most — the intersection of the private sector and public policy. I saw incentives that helped you, and regulations that hurt you.”
