New Editor in Chief at The Economist
The Economist has chosen a new editor and the choice boiled down to (see FT article for details) Zanny Minton Beddoes. She is the first female editor of the 150+ years old magazine that has defined adverse industry dynamics with its unique editorial model. Minton Beddoes has all the right lines on her CV to become a very successful editor. She is an economist from Oxford and Harvard, worked at the IMF and has been involved with global policy advice across the planet. She has been with the magazine for over 20 years.
