Former Fortune Magazine assistant managing editor John Brodie has been named executive editor at Grand Central Publishing’s Business Plus imprint.
The new editor has edited and written for a variety of publications, including GQ, Premiere, Variety, Best Life, and Spy Magazine. In his new position at Business Plus, Brodie will focus on acquiring business titles, but also looking for some general non-fiction books. He starts on April 5th.
Brodie had this statement: “Some of the best long-form journalism is now happening between the covers of books … I’ve always viewed business journalism as a way to look at society. To me, Robert Caro’s The Power Broker and several of Malcolm Gladwell’s works are business books, so I look forward to helping Rick expand both the output and the scope of the imprint in the years ahead.”
