He has had a prominent career as editor and/or president of five major titles, including Chicago magazine. Cheyfitz was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for his investigative reporting at the Detroit Free Press and winner of the Society of Professional Journalists’ prestigious Sigma Delta Chi Bronze Medallion for investigative reporting.

As Global CEO and Chief Storyteller of Story Worldwide, Kirk is recognized as a leading expert in the profitable use of content to extend brands, win customers, create loyalty and build sales. Kirk’s storied past led him to spend an evening with Fidel Castro while accompanying the late Senator Eugene McCarthy on an official mission to Cuba to discuss the future of tourism, open for folk/country-rock singer Emmylou Harris, and run bases in his youth for a US senator with a bad back named Jack Kennedy. He leads Story Worldwide, whose philosophy is connecting brands to customers by telling engaging and entertaining stories that audiences actually want to hear.
