I am the CEO of Mansueto Ventures, which is not a venture capital firm. (I hate to disappoint you if you were looking to raise money.) Mansueto Ventures is actually a media holding company and the home of the iconic media brands Inc. and Fast Company.
For three years before becoming CEO at Mansueto Ventures, I was the president and editor-in-chief of Inc., during which time the magazine was twice a National Magazine Award finalist for general excellence and once a winner. Before joining Inc., I was the founding editor of CBS MoneyWatch.com and the editor in chief of BNET.com; the sites together won more than a dozen awards for design and journalism during my tenure.
Prior to that, I was the editor-in-chief of Money Magazine, which won the Time Inc. Luce award for service journalism in each of the four years it was eligible. Other roles inside and out of journalism include deputy editor at Business 2.0, assistant managing editor at Fortune, and vice-president at Goldman Sachs.
As a writer, I have won a Loeb Award and a National Magazine Award. In other media, I have been a regular on Nightly Business Report on PBS, CNBC, CNN, The Today Show, The Early Show, Marketplace Radio and Good Morning America. Outside of work, I am a student pilot and an enthusiastic club tennis player. Not so long ago I came within match point of sending my team to the USTA national championships, a near-miss that still haunts me, but not so much that I leaves it out of my bio.
