Sellers named senior editor at large at Fortune

Pattie Sellers

Fortune managing editor Andy Serwer sent out the following staff announcement on Monday afternoon:

I want to tell you about some exciting personnel moves at Fortune.

First, Pattie Sellers has a new role and new titles. She will become Senior Editor at Large, and Executive Director of MPW/Live Content, Time Inc. She also will become executive director of the Most Powerful Women Summit. Pattie will continue working here at her home base, Fortune, but will also help create and develop new editorial ventures, specifically live events and conferences at other Time Inc titles and especially between Time Inc titles. In this capacity she will report in to Martha Nelson — while reporting to me at Fortune . This is a great opportunity for Pattie and for Fortune as well.

Leigh Gallagher, who of course has a number of roles as an AME, becomes a co-chair of MPW along with Stephanie Mehta and Nina Easton.

And Colleen Leahey — who will continue her work as a reporter at Fortune — will assume a new role as MPW digital and program manager, reporting to Lisa Clucas who becomes executive director of programming for MPW.

Congratulations to Pattie who has done such an incredible job of building up MPW, while continuing to write great stories for the magazine as well as pieces and major breaking news for the website on her blog Postcards. I am delighted that she is in a win/win situation where she can spread her wings on exciting new projects while staying in the Fortune fold. Kudos also to Leigh, Colleen and Lisa!
