A David Carey Retrospective

David Carey has never been an adherent of the famous line from “Oklahoma!,” “going about as far as they can go.” On June 25, he announced that he would be stepping down from president of Hearst Magazines, a penultimate job for many.

SmartMoney was Swartz’s first exposure to Hearst, where he would eventually rise to become Bennack’s successor as president and CEO in 2013. Among those impressed by Carey’s success at SmartMoney was... Continue reading at 'Folio Magazine'
