Good Shakes Up Editorial Staff

Good magazine strengthened their edit team today with the promotion of three veteran staffers and the addition of two new editors.  Editor-in-chief Zach Frechette announced the moves and is confident the changes will bolster the title’s value for readers:

These additions to the team represent our first significant investment in the editorial product in a number of years.  With new voices helping us add depth in key content areas, the goal is to transition from a well-curated selection of the most interesting people and ideas moving the world forward to a vital resource for those people that helps them achieve their goals.
