Former BCBusiness editor Matt O'Grady named executive editor of Canadian Business
until he resigned last May over the spiking of a major story by publisher Peter Legge. In the interim, he has been working as editor-at-large at Report on Business magazine.
A memo to staff from CB editor Duncan Hood said that O'Grady will edit the Performance section, research and write features and work with the other editors "to develop the overall personality, look and feel of the magazine".
He has worked as an associate editor at both Vancouver and Western Living magazines after completing a master of publishing degree from Simon Fraser University. Before that he had worked as an intern at Harper’s magazine.
