Erica Stephens, principal

A former editor for the Atlanta Business Chronicle, Erica Stephens has an extensive background in print and broadcast journalism. In addition to her tenure as a print editor, Erica worked in broadcast news, reporting for the Atlanta Business Chronicle Report on Georgia Public Broadcasting.

Prior to joining the Atlanta Business Chronicle, Erica worked as a writer and editor for a number of business journals, newspapers and trade publications including the Savannah News Press, QSR Magazine (serving the quick service restaurant industry), Healthcare CIO Report, Healthcare CFO Report, Savannah Business Journal, Business to Business, Atlanta Woman and Atlanta Jewish Times.

In 2005, she founded Weaver Stephens Group, where she manages and directs strategic planning, client relations and account services.
