New York Media Names Pamela Wasserstein CEO

A family affair.

New York Media, parent of New York, has named Pamela Wasserstein CEO. The Wasserstein family has owned New York since the late Bruce Wasserstein bought the magazine in 2004.

Wasserstein has served as New York’s co-chairwoman and head of strategy since 2014.

“We are committed, and we see a bright future for the company,” Wasserstein told the New York Times. “I wouldn’t have wanted to take this on if this wasn’t a place that I felt we could build value and an opportunity that I was excited about and my family is excited about.”

Wasserstein is succeeding Anup Bagaria, who has been CEO since 2004.
