Fortune Makes Editorial Changes

XtTZlC8VFortune has named Clifton Leaf its new deputy managing editor and Brian O’Keefe its new international editor.

Leaf returned to Fortune late last year as assistant managing editor. He had previously served as guest editor for The New York Times op-ed page and Sunday Review section. O’Keefe, a 14-year veteran of Fortune, most recently served as its assistant managing editor.

The changes were designed to help Fortune cope with the departure of Stephanie Mehta, who resigned from the magazine in order to take some time off. “Stephanie had many responsibilities at Fortune, so many in fact I think it’s best no single person take on all of her work,” wrote Fortune’s managing editor, Andy Serwer, in a memo.

Fortune Promotes Stephanie Mehta to Deputy Managing Editor

Stephanie Mehta has been promoted from executive editor, technology and Washington coverage, to deputy managing editor of Fortune. Mehta has been with Fortune since 2000, when she joined the magazine as a senior writer. She was bumped up to assistant managing editor in 2008, then executive editor in 2010.

“Stephanie helps steer the overall editorial direction of the magazine with great news sense and sophistication, and is a much sought-after mentor to writers and reporters from the most senior to the most junior,” wrote Martha Nelson, Time Inc.’s editor-in-chief, in a memo announcing the promotion. “Stephanie is everyone’s favorite colleague,” added Fortune’s managing editor, Andy Serwer, in the note. “It’s remarkable that someone who does so much is so gracious and generous too.”
