Mansueto Ventures has tapped Vanity Fair deputy editor Stephanie Mehta as the next editor-in-chief of Fast Company, CEO Eric Schurenberg announced today.
The announcement comes two months after Robert Safian, the magazine’s longtime editor-in-chief, revealed plans to step down after 11 years in the role. Safian has since gone on to found the media advisory firm Flux Group.
Mehta arrives at Fast Company having spent the last two years at Vanity Fair, where she headed up the brand’s New Establishment Summit and Founders Fair conferences in addition to serving as one of the magazine’s deputy editors. Prior to Vanity Fair, Mehta spent about a year at Bloomberg Media running the Bloomberg Live event series, and before that had a long tenure at Fortune, where she rose to executive editor in 2010 and deputy managing editor in 2013. She began her career in the early ’90s as a staff reporter for The Wall Street Journal.
