Burt Helm, an editor at large at Inc. and Fast Company, has left the two publications after a decade.

His work has appeared in The New York Times, the Boston Globe, the Washington Post, GQ, Businessweek, Men’s Journal, and Bloomberg News.

Helm is the recipient of four Best in Business awards for feature writing from the Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing. His Inc. feature story, “Turntable.fm: Where Did Our Love Go?” was called “hands down the best written of the magazine pieces” by SABEW, which awarded it a Best In Business prize for magazine feature writing.

His story about the credit crunch’s impact on small businesses, “After the Squeeze,” was awarded a Best in Business prize, as well as the 10th annual Stephen Barr Award by the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE). Helm was also part of the team that helped Inc. win a National Magazine Award for General Excellence in 2011 and 2013.

Prior to Inc., Helm worked as a reporter for Bloomberg News covering the restaurant industry, a department editor at Businessweek writing about advertising, and as a staff writer for Businessweek.com reporting on digital media and technology.
