Fortune’s deputy ME leaving magazine
by Chris Roush
Hank Gilman, deputy managing editor at Fortune who works with managing editor Andy Serwer to oversee all edit content at the magazine, is leaving the publication at the end of the month after 16 years.
“It has been 16 great years,” said Gilman in a message to Talking Biz News. “Not quite sure what I’m going to do, but probably speaking, project work, ghosting, teaching…and so on. We’ll see what happens.”
Gilman received the Loeb Awards lifetime achievement award last year, and he has also been named an outstanding alumnus from his alma mater, the University of South Carolina.
Before assuming this position, Gilman was managing editor of FSB: Fortune Small Business. He also edited the Small Business edition of Fortune, a special edit section launched in 1997 to target managers and directors of small businesses.
In an email to the staff, Gilman wrote, “Keep up the great work at the world’s greatest business magazine — and please keep in touch.”
Before joining Fortune, Gilman was business editor at Newsweek, where his staff won two Gerald Loeb awards. He also conceived and launched Computer & The Family (now entitled E-Life), Newsweek’s annual technology magazine.
Prior to that, Gilman worked as a reporter for The Wall Street Journal and as assistant business editor at The Boston Globe, where he oversaw the Sunday business section. He was also the Globe’s personal finance columnist for two years.
Gilman has a B.A. from South Carolina and a master’s degree from Indiana University.
