Pattie Sellers
Editor-at-Large, Fortune

Pattie Sellers has written some of Fortune's most talked-about cover stories and major profiles, including “MySpace Cowboys,” Eddie Lampert (“The Best Investor of His Generation”), Martha Stewart (“I cannot be destroyed”), Meg Whitman (“eBay’s Secret”), Ted Turner (“Gone with the Wind”) and Oprah Winfrey (“Oprah Inc.”). Every year since its launch in 1998, Pattie has helped oversee Fortune’s “Most Powerful Women in Business" cover package. A specialist at dissecting larger-than-life personalities, she has also profiled Treasury Secretary (and former Goldman Sachs CEO) Hank Paulson, Morgan Stanley CEO John Mack, and various media chiefs. And she has broken ground with insightful pieces on career management issues such as ego ("Get Over Yourself!"), "Charisma: Do You Need It? Can You Get It?" and "So You Fail. So What?" Pattie chairs the annual Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit, the preeminent gathering of women leaders in business, philanthropy, government, academia, and the arts. She started at Fortune in 1984, covering the big consumer brand companies.
