Bloomberg Finance Team Expands

Last week, Mike Tackett welcomed to Bloomberg a slew of new finance reporters – Maura Reynolds, Phil Mattingly, Meera Louis, Jesse Hamilton, Clea Benson, Carter Dougherty and Silla Brush

In an internal email announcing the newbies, Tackett said, “this reinforces the best crew covering the intersection of Washington and Wall Street and gives us the critical mass to write for the Terminal, BGov and Bloomberg Businessweek.”

FishbowlDC has reported some of the aforementioned hires but Tackett’s email roundup really portrays the hiring spree taking place at BGov.  For those of you counting – that’s three from CQ and one from The Hill – and that’s just the Finance team.  Memo after the jump.

This week we celebrate the birthdays of three reporters from The Hill. They are Silla Brush (Wednesday), Christina Wilkie (Thursday) and Roxana Tiron (Saturday).

The festivities were set for the Science Club in downtown Washington Thursday night. After leaving Science Club, the revelers went in search of the NBA finals, which they found at the Big Hunt.

> Update: Remarked Wilkie, “Many thanks to all the overworked reporters and significant others who stopped by last night. It feels great to be 24, and it’ll feel even better once my splitting headache subsides.”

The Hill’s Jeff Young Bids Farewell and Prepares for Bloomberg

Celebration-Drinks-600.jpg Scribes and friends gathered Tuesday night at Post Pub for The Hill’s health care guru Jeff Young‘s going away party.

A list of those who turned up last night: Young’s brother, Tim, his girlfriend, Sommer Mathis (who writes the DCist). Only co-workers and former co-workers were invited. (Full Disclosure: I worked with Young for many years and was invited to the soiree. So this post is going to be free of snark because I don’t have a bad thing to say about the guy.)

Jim Snyder, Roxana Tiron, Ian Swanson, Alex Bolton, JT Rushing, Jordan Fabian, Kevin Bogardus, Walter Alarkon, Kim Hart, Sean Miller, Emily Goodin, Sam Youngman, and Silla Brush. Representing The Hill’s alumni were Greenwire’s Mike Soraghan and The Atlantic’s Chris Good. Remarked Young: “My once-and-future colleague Patrick O’Connor broke my heart — not for the first time — by failing to show up and there’s a special place reserved in hell for Jared Allen, who brushed it off to go play sports or something.”

Young reflected on his time at the newspaper.
“It’s been a hell of a ride these past five years, capped off the a year-plus of health care reform insanity,” he wrote to FishbowlDC. “Mostly, there are some people I’m going to miss when I’m gone. (On a smaller scale, I’m really going to miss my Mac and will have to suffer Windows for the first time in years.)

“At the same time, there are only two people left in this news room, not counting Hugo [Gurdon] and Bob [Cusack], who’ve been here longer than I have. That alone might be a sign that it’s time to try something new. I’m also very excited about what we’ve got cooking at Bloomberg and I can’t wait to get started.”

We wish Young the best in his new job.
