    HistoryA hand-drawn blueprint, created in 2007 by Davis, outlining what would become the IBTimes FX Center.

    Founder Etienne Uzac, a native of France, came up with the idea for the global business news site while a student at the London School of Economics. He found that the strongest business newspapers had a focus on the U.S and Europe and planned to provide broader geographic coverage. Uzac recruited Johnathan Davis to join him in the enterprise. In late 2005 Uzac and Davis moved to New York to launch the site, with Uzac primarily focused on business strategy while Davis coded the site and wrote the first articles.

    In May 2012, the company announced that Jeffery Rothfeder had been appointed as the publication''s new Editor-in-Chief, while Davis, who previously served as Executive Editor, will manage the company''s content strategy across all platforms as the Chief Content Officer.

    On August 4, 2013, IBT Media, the owner of IBTimes, announced its purchase of Newsweek and newsweek.com from IAC/InterActiveCorp. The purchase does not include The Daily Beast. Peter S. Goodman became the editor in 2014.

    By October 2011, the site ranked within the top 400 U.S properties, and the top 900 global websites.


    Students of Olivet University used to work for IBT Media in the early days of the International Business Times, during the early days of the news publication, often by skirting rules for work of students brought to America on visas.
