Crain's New York AME is gone
Carmen Fleetwood, who joined Crain’s New York Business six months ago as an assistant managing editor,Â left the weekly newspaper this week, editor Greg David confirmed Wednesday evening. David said she left for personal reasons.
At Crain’s, Fleetwood had edited special sections and worked with staff reporters on stories for the web and print editions. She also edited Crain’s Health Pulse. David said her work will be taken over by Elizabeth MacBride, who will be a contributing editor and work primarily from her home outside Washington.
Before joining Crain’s, Fleetwood had been an assistant managing editor at Dow Jones Newswires. She was also a preliminary judge for the 20006 Gerald Loeb Awards.
She previously served as an assistant news editor and a reporter covering the Internet and computer hardware companies. Prior to Dow Jones, she worked at the Associated Press in the Trenton bureau and started as an editorial assistant in the sports department. Fleetwood graduated from Boston College with a BA in political science.
Meanwhile, David says he began looking this week for an editor to replace him as he moves toÂ the position of editorial director. He hopes to have a replacement by early next year.
