O’Connor, formerly of Forbes, hired by Bumble
Forbes reporter Clare O’Connor has been hired by networking and dating company Bumble to be its first editorial director and to build a media operation.
O’Connor writes, “Towards the end of the year, Whitney called to offer me a role as the company’s first Editorial Director, building a brand new, all-encompassing media division at Bumble. I didn’t hesitate for a second.
“I’ll lead a small but fast-growing team of experienced reporters and producers who’ll focus on creating engaging, impactful editorial products across a number of platforms. With a blank slate, groundbreaking tools at our disposal and an ethos of women’s equality and empowerment built in, Bumble Media has the potential to be truly disruptive.
“I start on January 9th, working from Bumble’s east coast office in New York. I don’t take for granted the opportunity to launch an entirely new segment within a company that, at just over three years old, has already made a tangible difference in millions of women’s lives. And we’re just getting started.”
