George Mannes, who left Money magazine earlier this year, has been hired by AARP The Magazine to oversee its personal finance coverage.
Mannes started in his new job as a senior editor this week.
Mannes had been at Money since March 2005 as a senior editor. He edited Money magazine’s First section and feature stories and was responsible for editorial content of video on Money.com. He previously edited the Retire section and “Adviser & Client” topic of Money.com, featuring commentary by financial advisers.
Mannes also edited “Aging’s Costliest Challenge,” a look at the heavy economic toll a diagnosis of dementia places on families. The package, which comprised print, digital, and video, was recognized with the 2016 Loeb Award in Personal Finance.
Before Money, Mannes spent seven years as a senior writer at TheStreet.com. He was also a reporter for the New York Daily News.
He’s a Dartmouth College graduate.
