Claire Zillman is a Chicago-area native currently working as a reporter and editor in London for Fortune Magazine. She covers women in business, gender in the workplace, and European business news for Fortune magazine—online and in print—and leads early news coverage for Fortune.com everyday.


For a year ending September 2017, she was lead author of The World’s Most Powerful Women, a daily email newsletter about women in business. Her writing has also appeared in Time Magazine.

Before moving to London in 2016, Claire worked as a labor and management reporter for Fortune in New York City, and prior to that wrote about legal affairs and the courts for The American Lawyer magazine and its daily news sites.

Claire attended Syracuse University, where she earned degrees in newspaper journalism and history with a minor in political science and was named one of the top 12 students in her graduating class of 3,200. At SU, she attended the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and graduated summa cum laude and with honors.

In addition to journalism, Claire loves running, cooking, the outdoors, and exploring her new-ish European backyard. The child of die-hard campers, Claire has visited 46 U.S. states—most by way of a minivan and a tent.
