Jenna Goudreau has been hired by Business Insider as the editor overseeing its strategy and careers coverage.

Goudreau started last week, said Jessica Liebman, Business Insider’s managing editor. Max Nisen, strategy reporter, and Vivian Giang, careers reporter, both report to Goudreau.

“We’re thrilled to have Jenna on the team as we’ve followed her work at Forbes and Entrepreneur for a while now through her impressive social media presence,” said Liebman in an email to Talking Biz News. “Jenna is heading up the strategy, leadership and careers coverage across our site.”

Goudreau spent five years at Forbes writing about business and leadership, attracting nearly one million unique visitors to Forbes.com each month. While there, she assistant edited the annual World’s 100 Most Powerful Women package and helped launch and grow ForbesWoman.com.

She has appeared on CBS, CNBC, MSNBC and E Entertainment and speaks often at conferences and events on women’s leadership topics.

Goudreau graduated summa cum laude from New York University with degrees in journalism and sociology and was honored with a best in business award from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers in 2012.
