I was an editor at LinkedIn from 2012 to 2020, starting as a temp curator and rising to be right hand to the editor-in-chief, in charge of our international expansion.
I joined the platform very early and was instrumental in building its editorial vision, particularly in developing its reach beyond the US and the English language. I built and lead our team of 30+ international editors around the globe, developing an expertise in management, editorial strategy, international growth and product thinking. But for years I also wrote a daily round-up of top business headlines, with just enough back-of-the-envelope analysis to make it fun, and the occasional column. See them all here.
