Forbes Media, the parent of Forbes magazine and Forbes.com website, is hiring for a new president, we have learned from multiple sources. This comes after Forbes.com CEO Jim Spanfeller announced last month that he was leaving, and amid questions about the future of Elevation’s stake in the company.

The new hire will continue with the print and online integration, sources say, a process that has been ongoing since late last year.
