operational insight to the owners and managers of privately held companies
throughout southeastern Wisconsin, including Milwaukee, Waukesha, Ozaukee,
Washington, Racine, Kenosha, Walworth and Sheboygan counties.

The new Web site features highlights from the current issue of SBT, breaking news
from the BizTimes Daily e-mail bulletin of Wisconsin business news, exclusive
columns of operational insight, streaming videos of SBT business events and many
other resources.

One of the most significant upgrades to the new Web site is the capability for
readers to search for news content by industry, including: banking & finance;
business services; commercial real estate; economic development; education and human
resources; government; health care; insurance; manufacturing; retail; technology;
and transportation.

Readers seeking advice about managing and growing their companies can search the Web
site by “Best Practices” categories, including: banking & finance; commercial real
estate; corporate leadership; education; health care; human resources; insurance;
manufacturing; sales; and technology.
In addition, readers can search the Web site for all SBT archived content by keyword.

Unlike some publications, SBT does not charge a fee or require a paid subscription
for access to its electronic content or archives.

“Our Web site was redesigned and re-engineered to directly complement our
company’s mission, which is to facilitate commerce,” said SBT publisher Daniel
Meyer. “We want our publication, our Web site, our BizTimes Daily bulletin and
our live events to help the owners and managers of southeastern Wisconsin
businesses grow their companies. Our Web site is an extension and a reflection
of our own corporate culture.”

In keeping with SBT’s tradition of doing business with local companies, the Web site
was designed and developed by Red Anvil LLC of West Milwaukee.

The Web site’s archives currently include content from SBT issues published in 2005
and 2006. Content from previous years will be added to the archives soon.
Companies featured in SBT articles and archives are welcome to post links to the
content at their Web sites and in their e-mail bulletins.

The SBT Web site will be fine-tuned and additional upgrades will be implemented over
