Fortune’s Lashinsky to be EIC of World 50
Fortune magazine executive editor Adam Lashinsky writes Monday about what his plans are as he leaves the magazine after 19 years.
His last day will be Oct. 14.
Lashinsky writes, “For starters, I am becoming editor in chief of World 50, an organization that builds private peer communities for CEOs and other top executives at leading global corporations. I have been moderating conversations for World 50 for more than a decade, and while the name of the outfit might not ring a bell, its members are the brightest lights at the world’s most important companies. World 50 itself is growing quickly, and I have a hunch its profile is going to rise in the months and years to come.
“I also have signed on as a contributing writer for Business Insider and its various Insider properties, writing an every-other-week reported column on business as well as several feature stories a year about whatever swing-for-the-fences topics I can scare up. BI is investing aggressively in quality journalism, particularly for its premium subscription offering, and I am energized to be working with its growing team of reporters and editors.
“There’s more. I will continue as a regular contributor to the Fox Business Network. I’m also working with a friend on a really exciting documentary film series, a project that’s so much fun we think it won’t be our last. And I think I might have the idea for my next book.
“I cannot begin to describe how much I love Fortune and always will. Before one of several color-scheme redesigns, I frequently said I bled Fortune blue.”
