Crain’s Chicago names new managing editor
by Chris Roush
Steve Reiss, who has been assistant managing editor at Crain’s Chicago Business, has been promoted to managing editor.
A story on its website states, “Mr. Reiss joined Crain’s in February from the Washington Post, where he was enterprise editor, helping develop and edit stories for the paper’s front page and the home page of its website. In more than two decades at the Post, Mr. Reiss worked with the paper’s metro, national, investigative and features departments; he also was deputy assistant managing editor of its Style section. Before joining the Post, he was a reporter and editor at the Miami Herald.
“‘Steve proved himself immediately to be an exceptional editor and manager as assistant managing editor of our Business of Life features department,’ Crain’s Editor Michael Arndt says. ‘He’ll now bring those talents to the entire publication.’
“Mr. Reiss, 55, is a native of Ohio. He received a bachelor’s degree in public policy from Princeton University in 1979.”
