Hymowitz joins Forbes from WSJ
Jeff Bercovici of Conde Nast Portfolio reports Wednesday that Carol Hymowitz, who previously wrote a management column for The Wall Street Journal, has joined Forbes as editorial director of Forbes Life Executive Woman.
Bercovici writes, “She’ll be overseeing a new quarterly magazine and developing a website for professional women.
“As I recently noted, Hymowitz’s duties at the Journal included an unofficial role as the paper’s point person on women’s workplace issues. ‘This is definitely a niche I care a great deal about and think has big potential,’ she said via email. She’ll report to CEO Steve Forbes.
“Hymowitz’s arrival at Forbes follows that of Tunku Varadarajan, a former editorial-page editor who’s now in a similar capacity at Forbes.com. London bureau chief Anita Raghavan is also a recent Journal transplant, as is tech columnist Lee Gomes.”
