Lambert named editorial director of Fortune Education
Fortune magazine editor in chief Clifton Leaf sent out the following announcement on Thursday afternoon:
Fortune has a long history of finding and recognizing talent from within—and so it is with great pleasure that I announce that Lance Lambert has been promoted again, this time to Editorial Director of Fortune Education, our soon-to-be-launched platform designed to help business professionals continue learning and find the new skills that will propel their careers. For several months now, as some of you know, Lance has been pulling triple-duty—doing his twin “day jobs” of producing the Fortune Analytics newsletter and writing smart, newsy, audience-guzzling stories for the site, while simultaneously creating an editorial framework for our new education-focused subdomain on Fortune.com. And with this latest promotion, we’re making this third role not only official, but Job No. 1.
We’ll share more about Fortune Education very soon, but for now I can say that it will be a hub for Fortune’s education coverage overall as well as home to our forthcoming rankings on higher education programs—starting with our list of Best Online MBAs, debuting later this month. Lance will also continue to run our polling and write Fortune Analytics, the premium subscriber-only data newsletter he built and launched in 2020. Since joining Fortune in 2019, Lance has covered everything from the COVID-19 recession to housing and the work-from-home transformation. After graduating from the University of Cincinnati with a B.A. in economics and journalism, Lance was a data journalist at realtor.com, Bloomberg (where he managed the Best Business School rankings), and the Chronicle of Higher Education.
Please join me in congratulating Lance.
