Forbes senior editor leaves magazine

March 21, 2008

Keith Kelly of the New York Post reports Friday that Forbes senior editor Lea Goldman, who has been responsible for the magazine’s list of top 100 celebrities, is leaving for a job at a women’s magazine.

ForbesKelly wrote, “Lea Goldman, a senior editor, is joining Joanna Coles at Marie Claire to be the features editor — a new job at the Hearst-owned magazine. Goldman starts the new gig on April 1, a Hearst spokeswoman confirmed.

Matt Miller, who took over the task of running the Forbes 400 when Peter Newcomb was poached by Graydon Carter‘s Vanity Fair a year and a half ago, will now add the Celebrity 100 to his domain as well, a source said.
