Today, Forbes CEO Mike Federle sent a note to staffers reflecting on the publication’s successes over the past year, saying it will enter into 2020 “stronger than ever,” according to a release issued by the organization.

The newsroom’s list of successes includes a record audience of 76.4 million unique visitors in November, as well as some new editors covering the CFO, CIO and small-business communities. The publication also redesigned its print experience and established the One Free Press Coalition, spearheaded by Forbes Chief Content Officer Randall Lane in partnership with the Committee to Protect Journalists and the International Women’s Media Fund.

Forbes created the video below to showcase its big wins for 2019:

The company prides itself on “richer, deeper” experiences for its niche communities like CMO, CFO, FinTech, Under 30 and more, all of which are made possible thanks to its employees, Federle said.

“You are entrepreneurs at heart, the very personification of our brand.”
