The GABB is an organization of professionals who work with Georgia business owners to help them in the process of evaluating, marketing, financing and selling their businesses. They also work with business buyers including many individuals who have decided not to re-enter corporate America, but want to become their own bosses by purchasing and operating a Georgia business.

David Rubinger has spent the past 30 years as both an award-winning journalist and corporate communications executive. Two years ago, he returned to his roots at Atlanta Business Chronicle to become its Market President and Publisher. The Chronicle is one of the largest and most successful business journals in the United States. It is the flagship for American City Business Journals Inc., which has business journals in 43 markets throughout the country.

Mr. Rubinger began his career in Atlanta with Atlanta Business Chronicle in 1989 to cover banking, investment, and real estate industries. He later served as managing editor and editor of the Chronicle until he joined Ketchum Public Relations as its senior vice president in late 1998. In 2003, he was tapped by Equifax to lead the company’s global communications team, and in 2008 struck out on his own to start Rubinger Inc., a boutique corporate communications firm before returning “home” to the Chronicle in 2015.

A native of New York City, Mr. Rubinger is a graduate of Trinity College in Hartford, Conn., where he received a B.A. in government. He is a member of Leadership Atlanta, the Emory University Board of Visitors and Emory’s Center for Ethics.
