Stephen Quickel

Stephen Quickel is the publisher of US Investment Report. He joined Forbes as reporter in 1962, when the magazine was small and relatively unknown. Rising to Staff Writer, Associate Editor and Senior Editor, he wrote thousands of articles, including more than fifty cover stories, on all aspects of business and finance. His specialty was critiquing publicly traded companies and their managements. He started Forbes’ first bureau in 1967 in Los Angeles, oversaw the expansion its worldwide bureau network until 1977 and frequently served as the magazine’s interim Managing Editor from the late 1960s onward. In 1977, he became Managing Editor of Institutional Investor, then a new magazine for investment professionals that was undergoing rapid expansion, including the launch of its international edition. In 1980 he became Editor of Financial World, then the only magazine devoted exclusively to the needs of individual investors, tripling circulation and assisting in its sale to new owners. In 1984 he served as start-up Editor in Chief of New York City Business, an award-winning local business tabloid subsequently sold to Crain’s New York Business. Mr. Quickel earned an AB in English and economics from Dartmouth College in 1958 and an MBA from Dartmouth’s Amos Tuck School 1959.
