About Fidelity Interactive Content Services

Fidelity Interactive Content Services (FICS) was established to present users with objective news, information, data, and guidance on personal finance topics drawn from a broad collection of sources.

The FICS team carefully chooses articles from leading publishers like The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Financial Times, Kiplinger's, and Barron's. They also feature select articles from Fidelity Viewpoints® that provide the latest and best thinking from the firm's top investment strategists, money managers, economists, and analysts.

With the markets more complex than ever, getting objective and timely information on investing ideas, retirement, personal finance, and other topics can help make the difference when you're making important financial decisions. It's the FICS team's mission to help investors get that information when they need it.

Steve Radwell, Vice President, Editor-in-Chief

A business and financial writer and editor with more than three decades of experience, Steve joined Fidelity in 2007 as vice president and editor-in-chief to build and lead the FICS editorial team.

Before joining Fidelity, Steve was deputy managing editor at CNNMoney.com, one of the nation's leading business news websites, where he orchestrated content programming for the site and produced award-winning coverage of the sentencing of ex-WorldCom CEO Bernie Ebbers.

Earlier in his career, he wrote about the financial markets and personal investing, and he covered the 1987 market crash while at Reuters and the 2000 dot-com meltdown while at CNNMoney.com.

Steve's articles on business, personal finance and investing have appeared in dozens of national and international publications, including The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune, and on websites worldwide.

Outside work, Steve loves hiking with his wife and two children, traveling, cooking, reading, and playing blues guitar and harmonica.

Tanya Shanosky, Senior Editor, Production Manager

From night clerk to editor — and almost everything in between — Tanya worked for 11 years at The Star-Ledger in Newark, N.J., before joining FICS in September 2011.

She held several roles at the newspaper, most recently assistant editor of its Business section. One of her most challenging but also rewarding assignments came during the financial crisis of 2008. As the unemployment rate rose, Tanya wrote an interactive feature, Hire Me, aimed at matching unemployed New Jersey residents – from new college grads to experienced executives — with potential job opportunities.

At FICS, Tanya holds a dual role as editor and production manager. She programs the content to be published on Fidelity.com and oversees the production process.

A Garden State native, Tanya lives in Kenilworth, N.J., with her husband and travel partner. In 2006, they set a personal goal to visit at least one new country every year until their passports expire in 2016. Their favorite destination so far: Iceland.

Michael Fitzpatrick, Senior Editor

A member of the FICS team since 2008, Mike is responsible for curating third-party content for the Fidelity.com homepage. In that role, he selects articles from major news outlets that both resonate with readers and support our goals of helping readers be more successful financially.

Mike is a long-time financial journalist with experience editing and covering a wide variety of stories. He previously managed technology and media coverage for Reuters in North America and ran West Coast financial coverage for the news agency. As a reporter and editor, he covered top financial stories including the World Trade Organization, OPEC ministers and mergers and acquisitions in the energy industry; entertainment events including the Oscar, Grammy and Emmy awards; and a variety of sports such as the Goodwill Games, the World Series and the Super Bowl. His work has appeared in major publications worldwide.

In addition to his work for Fidelity, Mike teaches journalism at Rutgers University, where he is an adjunct. He's also an assistant instructor and holds a second-degree black belt in the martial art of aikido.

Shanika Baldwin, Publishing Manager

A graduate of Columbia University with a degree in Political Science, Shanika began working at Fidelity in 2007 as an Executive Assistant to the FBS Comptroller.

In 2008, she was among the founding members of the newly created FICS team and helped mold the production and quality assurance processes still in use today.

In her current role, Shanika is responsible for publishing content to the Home, News, and Insights pages, as well as serving as a liaison to other Fidelity business partners.

In 2012, Shanika took an online project management training course from Boston University. She has since managed several projects for the FICS team and looks forward to further expanding this skill set.

A New Jersey native, Shanika — who prefers to be called Shan — lives in West Orange, N.J. with her calico cat, Remy. She enjoys reading anything from classics to crime fiction, traveling to different countries and mining HGTV for home improvement ideas.

James C. Johnson, Publishing Manager

James is a multimedia journalist with 15 years of experience producing print and online content for business and financial services professionals. He joined Fidelity in June 2013 as Manager of Web Content Publishing for the FICS editorial team.

Prior to joining Fidelity, James spent three years at Institutional Investor magazine as a Web Editor. Earlier in his career, he covered the small-business beat and held editor positions at Success Magazine, CMP Media, The New York Times, and Black Enterprise Magazine, where he was part of a team that won a prestigious "Folio" award for Editorial Excellence.

Relying on his experience as a serial entrepreneur, James helped launch several online enterprises, including his own. In 2008, he founded Khris Media, a digital media production company.

When he's not producing content, James enjoys watching movies with his wife on Netflix — comedies, dramas, and the occasional thriller — but no horror flicks. He and his wife also love taking vacations with their college-age sons.

Gregory Swindasz, Content Publisher

Greg has been a part of the Fidelity family since 2005. He started with the firm as a summer intern, while earning his degree in Journalism and Public Relations at Monmouth University. Greg was later hired as a full-time intern for the Tristate Regional Management and Public Affairs team based in Jersey City, N.J.

In 2010, Greg joined the Fidelity Interactive Content Services team. He is responsible for publishing content to the Home, News and Insights pages, as well as providing expertise in technology and the team’s content management system.

Born on Long Island and raised in New Jersey, Greg lives near Princeton close to his family and friends. He enjoys traveling as well exploring new and exciting foods. An avid reader, he can be found with his nose buried in a book most nights.

Simone Morris, Content Publisher

Simone started working for the FICS team in August 2008, shortly after the team was created. Prior to working at Fidelity, she sold season tickets for a basketball team and worked with a university Provost on academic appointments.

In January 2013, Simone left the FICS team to pursue her second bachelor's degree, with a focus on nursing. She is back with FICS, in a part-time role on the production team. Her responsibilities include entering content into the content management system, ensuring it is free of errors and helping with analytics as needed.

Simone comes from a large family, so her weekends are usually filled with birthdays and various get-togethers. In her remaining free time, she also enjoys the gym and is trained in modern dance.
