Ann Dwyer, a veteran Chicago journalist, has been named the first female editor of Crain’s Chicago Business in its 41-year history.
A story on its website states, “Dwyer, 54, came to Crain’s from the Chicago Tribune in 1995 as a copy editor, moving to the news desk in 1997 and later running some of the publication’s highest-profile features, including 40 Under 40, Best Places to Work, Coolest Offices and Fast 50. In March 2016, she became managing editor, taking over day-to-day newsroom operations in digital and in print.
“‘I owe so much to the editors and publishers who mentored me for more than two decades at Crain’s. I wouldn’t be ready to take on this challenge if it wasn’t for them,’ Dwyer said. ‘Perhaps because I’ve been with Crain’s for so long, I have a deep appreciation for the legacy that’s being placed in my hands.’
