The Yale Program on Stakeholder Innovation and Management announced the appointment of Alan Murray, departing chief executive officer of Fortune Media, as its inaugural executive fellow.

For four decades as a business journalist and media executive, Murray has been examining the issues and challenges confronting leaders at the intersection of business and society. Before becoming CEO of Fortune Media, he was chief content officer for Time Inc., president of Pew Research Center, an editor and reporter for The Wall Street Journal, and Washington bureau chief for CNBC.

He is the author of several books. In 2022, he wrote, with Catherine Whitney, Tomorrow’s Capitalist. In 2015, he launched Fortune’s Change the World list to recognize corporate social impact. He consulted with Business Roundtable leaders on their 2019 statement recognizing the need for companies to create value for employees, customers and community members, in addition to shareholders.

“Alan has established himself as one of the most trusted and influential voices in business, journalism and public opinion,” says Jon Iwata, Y-SIM practice leader and lecturer at Yale School of Management. “For years, he has kept his finger on the pulse of CEOs as they navigate the new realities in which business operates. Our program and the SOM community will benefit greatly from his knowledge.”
