Short of a promotion, it’s about as sweet and convenient a career move as possible. In May, Danielle Sacks (pictured) moved from one side of the 29th floor at 7 World Trade Center, where she was a senior writer for Fast Company, to the other side, where she is now a senior editor with sister publication Inc.
“There have been about five trades between the Yankees and the Mets,” spokesperson Drew Kerr tells FishbowlNY. “That’s about how many times an employee has moved between the two magazines owned by Mansueto Ventures, Inc.”
Sacks was with Fast Company for 12 years. When she took part earlier this year in the magazine’s series for which employees curate recommendations of third-party content, she was headlined as a “journalism geek.” A few months later, in the annals of Mansueto, she ranks as journalism freak.
Mansueto HR director Miles Merwin confirms Kerr’s Yankees-Mets analogy. “J.J. McCorvey moved from Inc. editorial to Fast Company editorial,” he tells us. “Kelsey Rodenbiker moved from Fast Company marketing to Inc. marketing. Amy Christiansen moved from Fast Company ad sales to Inc. ad sales some three years ago. That’s about it out of some 213 current regular employees.”
