Marc Gunther to Join Greener World Media As Senior Writer

Greener World Media today announced that veteran journalist Marc Gunther has been named a Senior Writer for its websites, newsletters, and publications.

At Greener World Media, Gunther will contribute regularly to GreenBiz.com and the company's other websites -- which include ClimateBiz.com, GreenerBuildings.com, GreenerComputing.com, and GreenerDesign.com -- as well as these sites' newsletters and blogs. Gunther also will contribute to GWM's growing stable of research reports and events, which include Greener by Design and the State of Green Business Forum.

Gunther also will provide critical editorial coverage for Greener World Media from Washington, D.C., where he is based, at a time that the nation's capital is becoming a growing center of focus for the clean and green economy.

"For years, Marc Gunther has been one of the most respected voices in the mainstream media on green business and corporate social responsibility, having written seminal pieces on Wal-Mart, General Electric, and many other leadership companies," says Joel Makower, Greener World Media's chairman and executive editor. "We look forward to bringing that voice to our business audience."

Gunther previously was a senior writer for Fortune magazine, where he remains a contributor, and is author of Faith and Fortune: How Compassionate Capitalism is Transforming American Business (Crown Business, 2004). He serves as conference chair of Brainstorm: Green, Fortune's conference about business and the environment. Before joining Fortune in 1996, Gunther worked for more than 20 years for newspapers including the Paterson (N.J.) News, Hartford Courant, Detroit News, and Detroit Free Press.

"I'm thrilled to be working with the Greener World Media team. It's an exciting time to be writing about business and the environment, and a great moment to be working in digital media. There's no shortage of stories to cover -- and no shortage of space, either."

"Marc Gunther joins our growing stable of talented thought leaders, including green building pioneer Rob Watson and business strategist John Davies," says Pete May, Greener World Media's president and publisher. "His deep experience in covering corporate environmental issues will help burnish our reputation as the go-to news source on the greening of mainstream business."
