New editor of FinancialWeek

August 15, 2006

Glenn Coleman has been named the new editor of FinancialWeek, a new publication from Crain Communications Inc, according to a news release.

Beginning Aug. 14, Coleman returns to Crain Communications from Popular Science where he was deputy editor. Previously, he had been assistant managing editor of Money. Both magazines are published by Time Inc.

Prior to joining Money in 1999, Coleman led the launch of InvestmentNews, a weekly newspaper for the financial advisory business published by Crain Communications. He joined Crain in 1990 as features editor of Crain’s Chicago Business, and served as managing editor before joining InvestmentNews as editor.

“We’re extremely pleased that Glenn has come back to Crain, and we’re confident that he will be instrumental in making FinancialWeek a serious, fast-paced and comprehensive newspaper that captures the flair and drama of corporate finance,” said William T. Bisson Jr., group publisher of Crain Financial Publications.

Located at Crain’s New York City offices, FinancialWeek is a business tabloid distributed to 55,000 chief executive officers, chief financial officers, treasurers, controllers, secretaries, investor relations directors and others within the upper tier of financial decision-makers at the largest U.S. corporations.

The previous editor — former Bloomberg News editor Rob Hertzberg — was fired by Bisson for failing to produce an initial issue this summer that provided the kind of news content that he wanted.
