Senior Writer at Fast Company

About Ellen

Ellen McGirt is a senior writer with Fast Company Magazine, where she writes the type of long form profiles that everyone says will soon go the way of the dodo. She hopes everyone is wrong on this one. During the past five years, she’s had the time to explore and explain the people, technology, and companies who are shaping the world: Mark Zuckerberg, Al Gore, Jack Dorsey, Chloe Sladden, Chris Hughes, Ursula Burns, and Nike’s Mark Parker, to name a few. Her love of digital remains strong, however, and she started Fast Company’s 30 Second MBA series in 2009. She has been a frequent guest on CNN, CNBC, and Good Morning America. She’s also written for Fortune, Time, and Money, which rings more like a Dickensian law firm than magazines she loved. Previously, when the web was young, she was the founder of a financial website for women called Cassandra’s Revenge, and established similar sites for AOL and Oxygen Media.
