As managing editor of FORTUNE, Andy Serwer is responsible for overseeing FORTUNE magazine and FORTUNE.com, with a combined audience of more than 11 million readers, as well as FORTUNE digital media and FORTUNE's conferences. He was named managing editor of FORTUNE in October 2006. FORTUNE is the only business magazine with a truly global distribution, and the FORTUNE 500 is universally recognized as the most important list of top corporations. In 2010, Serwer won the S.A.B.E.W (Society of American Business Editors and Writers) Award for Best in Business General Excellence. That year, the magazine also received a Loeb Award and a New York Press Club award for its 2009 reporting on Bernie Madoff.

Serwer has also overseen a significant expansion of both FORTUNE.com and the FORTUNE conference division. FORTUNE was the first business magazine with an iPad app and has more than 500,000 followers on Twitter. Under his leadership, the magazine underwent a major editorial redesign in 2009, and cut its frequency in order to offer readers a higher-quality magazine with heavier paper and cover stock and a new, more focused, editorial mission.

In 2010, FORTUNE led the FORTUNE/TIME/CNN Global Forum in Cape Town, South Africa, hosting President Clinton, President Jacob Zuma, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and numerous world business leaders at the premiere business conference during the World Cup. In 2013 FORTUNE will host the FGF in Chengdu, China. The FORTUNE Most Powerful Women Summit, which featured Meg Whitman, Chelsea Handler and Warren Buffett in 2010, sells out a year in advance and has an extensive waitlist.

Serwer joined FORTUNE in 1985 as an intern from Columbia Journalism School and went on to cover and edit Wall Street, investing, information technology and entertainment for the magazine. In 2000, he was named Business Journalist of the Year by TJFR Business News Reporter, which called him "perhaps the nation's top multimedia talent, successfully juggling the roles of serious journalist, astute commentator and occasional court jester." He is a regular guest on MSNBC'S Morning Joe and CNBC's Squawkbox, and from 2001 to 2006 he served as the business anchor for CNN's American Morning.

Serwer received a B.A. in history from Bowdoin College, an MBA from Emory University and a master's in journalism from Columbia University.
