Zach Seward, the editor in chief of the financial news site Quartz, is leaving after 11 years.

You are working under one of the best leaders and mentors in business journalism, so enjoy it! I will miss having direct access to Heather’s spot-on advice, sharp edits, and unwavering ability to see the humanity in work.
“My own plans are uncertain. I’d like to use the next few months for a mix of personal and professional projects while figuring out what’s next.
