Gilman joining Reuters
Martin Howell, top news editor and deputy editor of Americas for Reuters, sent out the following announcement on Thursday morning:
I am delighted to announce that Hank Gilman, who was deputy managing editor at Fortune for eight years, will be joining the top news team in New York in early September.
In the No.2 role at Fortune, Hank was involved in just about everything – from producing award-winning stories to managing operations day-to-day, as well as hiring and budgeting. Hank was the recipient of the Lawrence Minard Award from the Loeb Foundation in 2011 – an award conferred on an editor who is considered the quintessential “writer’s editor.” Before joining Fortune, where he spent 16 years, Hank was business editor at Newsweek, an assistant business editor at the Boston Globe and a reporter at the Wall Street Journal. He has recently been contributing editor at Inc.
Hank, who is author of the management memoir “You Can’t Fire Everyone,” will bring immense experience and talent to the top news team. He will specialize on some of our biggest initiative stories — working in particular with new Companies Editor Eric Effron and Finance Editor Paritosh Bansal to take our corporate coverage to new levels. Please join me in welcoming Hank to the team.
