June 5, 2023
The Endeavor Business Media executive editor was promoted to lead editor of EBM’s flagship Commercial Vehicle Group publication. With more than two decades in journalism, Fisher first joined FleetOwner in 2017.

Endeavor Business Media has promoted Josh Fisher to editor-in-chief of FleetOwner, the nation’s leading business management publication for the trucking industry. Fisher brings more than two decades of journalism experience into this new role. He has been with FleetOwner for six years, holding various editorial roles, including digital editor, technology editor, and senior editor.

In 2021, Fisher was named executive editor, a role that included working on FleetOwner’s expanded digital coverage of the freight transportation industry. He replaces Cristina Commendatore, who served as FleetOwner’s top editor since 2020.

“Josh has been a driving force in the market since joining FleetOwner, and he’s shouldered a significant amount of content development over the years,” said Michael Uliss, VP market leader for EBM’s Commercial Vehicle Group. “As technological advancements in the commercial vehicle market continue to be critical content for FleetOwner’s audience, Josh has taken a leadership role in staying ahead of the curve for our subscribers. I’m thrilled we have such a well-deserving team member to take the helm at FleetOwner.”

Along with various video endeavors, Fisher oversees the annual FleetOwner 500 Private Fleets of the Year awards and the two FleetOwner 500 lists that each year rank the largest for-hire and private fleets in the U.S. Before joining FleetOwner in 2017, Fisher spent 16 years as a reporter, editor, and director for a chain of newspapers in the New York metro area.

“I met Josh in his early days with FleetOwner, and I’ve always been impressed with his intelligence and passion for developing a story the right way,” said Kevin Jones, editorial director for EBM’s Commercial Vehicle and Infrastructure groups. “He’s never been shy about speaking up when it comes to making sure FleetOwner remains the best title in the business, and I’m excited about the future under Josh’s leadership.”
