Texas Lawyer editor takes on two other ALM publications
Heather Nevitt has been promoted to executive editor of ALM’s Corporate Counsel and Inside Counsel publications in addition to her role as editor in chief of Texas Lawyer.
In the new role, Nevitt will be reporting, editing, bringing video and podcasts to the publication’s sites, and developing new event ideas to engage readers and sponsors.
“Heather has demonstrated the ability to build a strong digital presence with the Texas Lawyer while also innovating on print,” said Molly Miller, chief content officer at ALM, in a statement. “Her focus on the in-house market has come to life through the work she has done on the in-house section of the Texas Lawyer and through the many events she has successfully brought to market.
Nevitt joined ALM in 2005 as acquisitions book editor for Texas Lawyer where in two years she grew the book business three-fold.
In 2010, she took on the role of regional book editor for the Southern region that included Texas, Georgia and Florida book acquisitions. In 2013, she became the editor in chief of Texas Lawyer and took on the challenge of transitioning the traditionally print-focused publication to think digital first.
In April 2015, she oversaw the conversion of Texas Lawyer from a weekly newspaper to a daily digital publication and monthly magazine. Heather and her team have won several Jesse H. Neal awards for best single issue and best theme issue of a paper or magazine.
Before joining ALM, Nevitt practiced law and earned her juris doctorate from Michigan State University College of Law in East Lansing, Michigan.
