Medium has hired three for its new biz publication
Medium’s yet-to-be-named business magazine has hired three staff writers.
Steve LeVine, editor and lead writer of Axios’ widely followed daily Future newsletter, is joining Medium as editor at large.
LeVine, a former foreign correspondent and the author of three books, will be editor-at-large at Medium’s yet-to-be-named business magazine and will also write for OneZero and Gen, Medium’s science and technology, and general interest publications, respectively.
At Axios, LeVine concentrated on the momentous social, economic and geopolitical impacts of technology and work, along with demographic trends, and those will remain among his core topics at Medium.
LeVine was a foreign correspondent in the former Soviet Union, Pakistan and the Philippines, running a bureau for The Wall Street Journal, and before that writing for The New York Times, the Financial Times, and Newsweek. In the U.S., LeVine wrote the influential “Oil and Glory” blog at Foreign Policy, and was then a senior writer at Quartz.
LeVine is a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Foresight, Strategy and Risk Initiative, and an adjunct professor in the graduate Security Studies Program at Georgetown University.
Danielle Sacks, executive editor at Inc. magazine, will be joining the business publication as executive editor.
Sacks is an award-winning journalist who has spearheaded features coverage at Inc. and led some of their most prominent franchises, including the State of Women and Entrepreneurship editorial package.
Previously, Sacks was a senior writer at Fast Company magazine for more than a decade, where she profiled high-profile figures across advertising, food, design, e-commerce, retail, sustainability, tech, and innovation. Her work was included in the Best Business Writing 2014 anthology; in 2006, she was awarded the New York Press Club Nellie Bly Award.
Jean-Luc Bouchard will be joining the business publication as senior platform editor.
Bouchard, currently a senior content strategist at Acorns, has been a growth editor at Quartz and a social media editor at Business Insider. He has also written humor pieces for BuzzFeed and The Onion.
