Carol Loomis, a Fortune editor-at-large, has been on the editorial staff of the magazine for 52 years. She writes primarily about financial subjects and has also done many profiles, including articles about Warren Buffett, Sandy Weill, and Robert Rubin. She has won many awards for her writing. Among these are four lifetime achievement awards: the Gerald M. Loeb Lifetime Achievement Award (1993); the Women’s Economic Round Table award (2000) for print journalists, of which she was the first recipient; Time Inc.’s Henry R. Luce Award (2001), of which she was also the first recipient; and the Society of American Business Editors and Writers Distinguished Achievement Award (2006). As a result of a FORTUNE article Loomis did in the 1970s, the U.S. Government began to compile consolidated financial statements. Subsequently, the Secretary of the Treasury appointed Loomis to the Advisory Committee on Federal Consolidated Financial Statements.
