Read Full Story
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.
