Jonathan Tepperman has been named editor in chief of Foreign Policy, a role he will take on late next month.
“We are delighted to have an editor-in-chief with Jonathan’s experience and deep knowledge of global affairs join the FP team,” said Timothy O’Shaughnessy, president and chief executive officer of FP parent Graham Holdings Company in a statement.
Tepperman joins from Foreign Affairs, where he has served as managing editor during what has been his second stint with the publication, which he rejoined in 2011. He first joined Foreign Affairs in 1998 as a junior editor. In between, he worked at Newsweek International as deputy editor and outside the journalism world as a political risk consultant.
Tepperman is the author of The Fix: How Nations Survive and Thrive in a World in Decline, which looks at case studies of local and national governments that have successfully tackled one of 10 major problems Tepperman examines likes corruption and immigration reform.
When he joins, Tepperman will be taking over for Foreign Policy CEO Ann McDaniel, who has been serving as interim EIC since David Rothkopf left the publication in May.
