Quartz hires Bindrim to run talent lab
Quartz editor of new initiatives Xana Antunes sent out the following announcement on Monday:
I’m happy to announce that Kira Bindrim, the managing editor of Newsweek, is joining Quartz as editor of our new talent lab, starting May 9th.
At Newsweek, Kira was responsible for building a new staff, relaunching the website, and steering the magazine’s return to print. Previously, she was homepage editor at Reuters, and worked on the consumer-facing Reuters Next project (RIP). Kira started her career at Crain’s New York Business, where she was special projects producer (among other roles).
Some of us have had the pleasure of working with Kira in the past, and have learned to appreciate her energy, humor, and astonishing ability to get things done. I’m thrilled to be working with her again.
As editor of the talent lab, Kira will work closely with Jackie and myself to get the incubator off the ground, as both a place for identifying and working with global journalistic super-talent outside our organization and helping develop the many talented people inside Quartz.
Please join me in welcoming her.
