Short biography
Stanley Bing is a columnist for Fortune magazine, which he joined in 1995 after a decade writing a monthly column for Esquire magazine.   When he is not commenting on corporate life, Bing works for an enormous multinational conglomerate whose identity is one of the worst-kept secrets in business. [adapted from What Would Machiavelli Do? (2000)]
Stanley Bing is a Fortune columnist and best-selling author of business books noted for their wisdom as well as their sharp, slightly acrid sense of humor. He is also the only writer on business and the workplace who still puts on a suit and tie and goes to do battle with the dragons that breathe fire at corporate America every day. This site captures what remains of his brain after it has exploded in all other directions.
