Crain’s New York hires Green as assistant managing editor
In his new post, Green will join fellow AME’s Barbara Benson and Erik Engquist and report to Crain’s editor Jeremy Smerd, with responsibility for developing cover stories across all beats and editing real estate, tech and media coverage. He will also assist in rolling out special packages for Crain’s newly redesigned print news magazine.
Green is a 2012 recipient of Columbia University’s Christopher J. Welles Award for a series on tax whistle blowers that prompted action on the Senate floor and forced changes to the way the IRS compensates whistle blowers. He also won a New York Press Association award in 2013 for his coverage of Hurricane Sandy.
A native of New York City, Green is a graduate of St. John’s College in Annapolis, Maryland, and holds a MA in French from NYU and an MS in Journalism from Columbia, where he was a Knight-Bagehot fellow.
Green also served as national editor of Metro, and is a former East Europe correspondent for the International Herald Tribune. He speaks Czech and French, and once had a passive knowledge of ancient Greek.
