Forbes executive editor resigns
by Chris Roush
Brett Nelson, the executive editor at Forbes, has resigned and will leave the magazine on Friday, a spokeswoman confirmed to Talking Biz News.
Nelson has been with the magazine for 14 years. In 2005, he moved over to Forbes.com to launch a section covering entrepreneurs.
Nelson actually studied mechanical engineering after college. But after two years of working in a machine shop, he switched careers.
In his 14 years at Forbes, he wrote about large corporations, money managers and investment strategies — good and bad.
“For my money, though, the most fascinating subjects are self-made wealth builders,” he wrote on Forbes.com. “Now, as Executive Editor (with an M.B.A. from the Stern School of Business at NYU) overseeing coverage of entrepreneurs and small businesses, I get to share their triumphs and hard-won discoveries with the world.”
