Media Flash: 'Forbes' Co-Editor Maidment Resigns

The changes keep coming at Forbes Media. Paul Maidment, the editor in charge of Forbes.com for nearly a decade, is leaving the company, he announced Monday. "I am ready to advance to the next phase of my life," he said in a statement to colleagues. His departure comes shortly after Lewis Dvorkin joined the company as chief product officer, a newly-created position that gives him responsibility for all editorial content. Dvorkin's hiring was part of the acquisition of True/Slant, a blogging community he founded, by Forbes.

Maidment has been with Forbes since 2001. For years, he was editorial head of a web operation that operated more or less independently in parallel to Forbes magazine. In 2008, Forbes integrated the two entities, and Maidment and Baldwin become co-editors.

On Friday, Forbes announced that it is planning to sell Investopedia, a financial-education website it acquired in 2007.
