Marla Dickerson Promoted to Business Editor of the LA Times

The Los Angeles Times announced today that Marla Dickerson has been named the new business editor of the paper. Dickerson has worked at the LA Times for 16 years, and served as a deputy business editor for the past three.

More on Dickerson’s career in the memo from editor Davan Maharaj and managing editor Marc Duvoisin:

A former business correspondent in Mexico City, Marla has a deep understanding of the trade and immigration ties that bind Los Angeles to Latin America. As editor of our China business coverage for the past few years, she has helped give readers a window into the world’s second-largest economy. She and colleague Evelyn Iritani won the Malcolm Forbes Award from the Overseas Press Club of America in 2002 for their series “China: the Giant Awakes.”

The full memo can be read at the LA Times Reader’s Representative Journal.
