Stephen Engelberg was the founding managing editor of ProPublica from 2008-2012, and became Editor-in-Chief on January 1, 2013. He came to ProPublica from The Oregonian in Portland, where he had been a managing editor since 2002. Before joining The Oregonian, Engelberg worked for The New York Times for 18 years, including stints in Washington, D.C., and Warsaw, Poland, as well as in New York. He is a member of the Pulitzer Prize Board and of the Board of Directors of the American Society of News Editors. After beginning his career at The Times, he worked as a reporter for The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk and for The Dallas Morning News before returning to The Times to write news and investigative articles on national security matters. After a stint as The Times bureau chief in Warsaw immediately following the collapse of Communism, he resumed his work as an investigative reporter in 1993. Engelberg shared in two George Polk Awards for reporting: the first, in 1989, for articles on nuclear proliferation; the second, in 1994, for articles on U.S. immigration. A group of articles he co-authored in 1995 on an airplane crash was a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize. Engelberg’s work since 1996 has focused largely on the editing of investigative projects. He started The Times's investigative unit in 2000. Projects he supervised at The Times on Mexican corruption (published in 1997) and the rise of al-Qaeda (published beginning in January 2001) were awarded the Pulitzer Prize. During his years at The Oregonian, the paper won the Pulitzer for breaking news and was a finalist for its investigative work on methamphetamines and charities intended to help the disabled. He is the co-author of Germs: Biological Weapons and America's Secret War (2001).
