SIERRA magazine is pleased to announce that Steve Hawk, who has served as temporary Managing Editor and Acting Deputy Editor of SIERRA magazine for the past year, has been promoted to Executive Editor.

Steve is a consummate magazine professional. He put in nine years as editor of Surfer magazine, two years as editorial director of the Action Sports Group (which produced Bike, Surfer, Surfing, Powder, Snowboarder, Skateboarder, Climbing, and Canoe and Kayak). He also served as editorial director of the web start-ups surfline.com, monsterskate.com and crossrocket.com, where he assembled and managed a staff of 35 writers, editors, photographers, and designers. He began his journalism career as a newspaper reporter for publications that include the Orange County Register, edited an anthology of journalism titled "How I Got to Be This Hip," and most recently served as a consultant and staff writer for the HBO television series John From Cincinnati.

Steve's mission is to make SIERRA, already the number one member benefit, as good as any magazine on the news rack while quickly helping to develop a fresh, timely, highly-interactive, web-based magazine that complements and enhances the print version. Steve didn’t waste any time bringing in new writers and photographers from other notable magazines in the outdoor category and creating new editorial departments including gear reviews, outdoor adventure features and departments.

A lifelong surfer, Steve lives with his wife Pamm and two children in Half Moon Bay, California. He also loves to fly fish has fished in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Alaska, and, of course, California, but doesn’t break out his fly rod as often as he'd like.

Steve Hawk’s efforts and the talented staff at SIERRA are the reason why the magazine is a finalist in five categories for 2009 Maggie awards. Bestowed by the Western Publications Association, the Maggie Awards highlight deserving publications whose work is deemed “The Best in the West.” The association nominated SIERRA in the following consumer categories: Politics & Social Issues, Best Single Editorial Illustration, Best Series of Editorial Illustrations, Best Cover for circulation more than 50,000 and Best Regularly Featured Department.

It’s no coincidence that the magazine's already high quality has improved significantly during the period when Steve has been helping the staff celebrate SIERRA 's "explore, enjoy, and protect" motto with smart writing, beautiful photography and stunning art and design.

SIERRA magazine is a bimonthly publication of the Sierra Club, the most influential grassroots environmental organization in America with more than 700,000 members nationwide. www.sierraclub.org/sierra.
