NYT’s Corner Office writer becoming environment editor

September 5, 2014

Adam Bryant, who conducts interviews with chief executives for Corner Office, a feature about leadership and management in The New York Times, is becoming the newspaper’s environment editor.

Science editor Barbara Stauch writes:

Adam has worked on every floor of the newsroom, in a wide range of roles, including business reporter and as a deputy editor on BizDay and National. He also ran the How We Live desk, and was a member of the team that produced the Innovation Report this spring. Given his new responsibilities, he’ll be scaling back his Corner Office feature in the business section — it will continue in its traditional slot every Sunday, but he’ll be dropping the Friday installment.

Adam starts in his new role after Labor Day.

Bryant is the author of “Quick and Nimble; Lessons from Leading CEOs on How to Create a Culture of Innovation.”  His first book, “The Corner Office; Indispensable and Unexpected Lessons from CEOs on How to Lead and Succeed,” which draws out broader insights from his interviews, was a New York Times best-seller.

Bryant has had many roles at The Times, including business reporter, deputy business editor, deputy national editor and senior editor for features. He is also a former senior writer and business editor at Newsweek magazine. He was the lead editor of a series on the dangers of distracted driving that won a Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting.
