Harvard Business Review taps Ignatius as editor
Harvard Business Review has named Adi Ignatius, the deputy managing editor of Time magazine, as its editor-in-chief.
Ignatius (right) will be based at the magazine's main offices in Watertown, Harvard Business Review said.
In a press release, the Review noted that before becoming deputy managing editor, Ignatius served as executive editor of Time and was responsible for the magazine's business and international coverage.
The announcement was made by David Wan, president and chief executive of Harvard Business Publishing, which publishes Harvard Business Review.
Wan said in a statement: "Adi is a first-rate journalist and a highly accomplished magazine editor whose management experience and international perspective make him ideally qualified to lead Harvard Business Review. His energy and leadership will be especially valuable as the magazine seeks to evolve and grow to meet the needs of its global readers and fulfill its mission to improve the practice of management."
Founded in 1922, Harvard Business Review sees its goal as providing required reading for business and organizational leaders around the world.
