Penelope Wang and George Mannes, two staffers who have been at Money magazine for more than a decade, have both left the publication.

In her “Retire with Money” newsletter last week, Wang wrote, “I have some personal news to report: This is my final week at Money. No worries, though. The Retire with Money newsletter will continue under the expert management of my colleagues.”

She has a new job starting April 3.

Wang has been at the magazine since 1989, first as a senior writer and for the last seven years as an editor at large.

She wrote mainly for the retirement and investing sections. Between 2014 and 2016, Wang worked as online retirement section chief, assigned and edited stories, recruited contributors, and wrote columns. In February 2015, she launched a weekly retirement newsletter, which now has more than 30,000 subscribers.

Wang previously worked at Forbes and as a business writer at Newsweek magazine.

Mannes had been at Money since March 2005 as a senior editor. He edited Money magazine’s First section and feature stories and was responsible for editorial content of video on Money.com. He previously edited the Retire section and “Adviser & Client” topic of Money.com, featuring commentary by financial advisers.

Before Money, Mannes spent seven years as a senior writer at TheStreet.com. He was also a reporter for the New York Daily News.
