Eric Schurenberg has been the CEO of Mansueto Ventures, the owner of Inc. and Fast Company media properties, since 2018. Each year of his tenure the company has recorded its best annual financial performance since inception, as the brands expanded beyond print and digital into live and digital events, video, data, and recognition programs.
For the previous three years, he was the president and editor-in-chief of Inc. and editor of Inc. for the three years before that, during which the magazine was twice a National Magazine Award finalist for general excellence, winning once. Before joining Inc, Eric was the founding editor of CBS MoneyWatch.com and the editor in chief of BNET.com; the sites together won more than a dozen awards for design and journalism during his tenure.
Prior to that, Eric was the managing editor of Money Magazine, which won the Time Inc. Luce award for service journalism in each of the four years it was eligible. Other roles inside and out of journalism include deputy editor at Business 2.0, assistant managing editor at Fortune, and vice-president at Goldman Sachs. As a writer, he is a winner of a Loeb Award and a National Magazine Award. He has been a regular commentator on Nightly Business Report on PBS, CNBC, CNN, The Today Show, The Early Show, Marketplace Radio and Good Morning America. For Inc. and Fast Company, he hosts a LinkedIn Live interview program called The Human Factor.
Outside of work, Eric is a private pilot and plays club tennis. Not so long ago, he came within match point of sending his team to the USTA national championships, a near-miss that still haunts him, but not so much that he leaves it out of his bio.
