Thomas A. Silvestri, president and publisher of the Richmond Times-Dispatch, will participate in a C-Suite Conversation 8 a.m. March 5 at the University of Richmond’s Robins School of Business. This event was rescheduled from January due to inclement weather.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch has the second-highest circulation of any Virginia newspaper with an average of more than 100,000 readers on weekdays and more than 150,000 on Sunday.

Silvestri has worn many hats in his 35+-year career, including stringer, reporter, copy/line editor, business editor, deputy managing editor, division staff executive, the president of a community newspaper group, publisher of a mid-size newspaper, vice president of a regional group and a Sunday columnist.

He is well-known for the Richmond Times-Dispatch’s engagement initiative, “The Public Square,” which has been hailed by the community for demonstrating civil public conversations on important topics.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch also is home to a sizable staff from Omaha-based BH Media Group.

C-Suite Conversations are unscripted interviews with regional business decision makers and leaders. The series highlights challenges and opportunities of high-level executives and provides insight about how they balance leadership obligations with the needs of stakeholders.

Richard Coughlan, senior associate dean of the Robins School and director of The Richmond MBA, will interview Silvestri.

The program will be held in Queally Hall, Ukrop Auditorium. It is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
