Kiplinger's Personal Finance
Mark became editor of Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine in July 2017. In addition to his duties overseeing the magazine, he continues to assign and edit articles for the magazine's Money and Living sections. Prior to becoming editor, he was the Money and Living sections editor and, before that, the automotive writer. He has also been editor of Kiplinger.com as well as the magazine's managing editor, assistant managing editor and chief copy editor. Mark has also served as president of the Washington Automotive Press Association.
Despite being a money expert himself, Kiplinger editor Mark Solheim found the advice industry to be a labyrinth of credentials and opaque fee structures when he went looking for financial guidance from the pros.
