Irin Carmon of Women’s Wear Daily reports Tuesday of changes at the top of the Fast Company masthead by new editor in chief Robert Safian.
Carmon wrote, “Will Bourne has been promoted to executive editor from deputy editor, with outgoing executive editor Keith Hammonds moving to the role of contributing editor. Charles Fishman, formerly a senior writer who won his second Loeb Award for a Fast Company story last month, will now be editor at large.”
Later, she added, “Along with sister publication Inc., the magazine has moved to new offices in 7 World Trade Center, whose sleek and green-certified accoutrements can be seen in a slide show on the Fast Company Web site entitled ‘Welcome to the Future.’ Safian’s editor’s letter in the June issue, his first, noted that ‘some staffers at our company chose not to move with us; the memories were too harsh. But I feel differently. For a magazine like Fast Company, there is no more fitting location for our headquarters: a place that is all about rebirth and potential and the promise of tomorrow.'”
