Government Executive is an American trade magazine, founded in 1969. It was purchased in 1987 by National Journal, which itself was purchased in 1997 by the Atlantic Media Company, owned by David Bradley. The magazine is distributed free to senior executives in federal, state and local governments.[1] In 2009, the independent research firm Market Connections, Inc. cited the magazine as the number one publication read by federal managers.[2]

The editorial team is led by Tom Shoop, along with managing editor Sue Fourney and executive editor Katherine McIntire Peters, who also oversees the tech-focused Nextgov sister site.[3][4]
