A couple hours ago we told you about The Wall Street Journal snagging The Financial Times’ Francesco Guerrera, and now we have a few more moves to report. Alix Freedman has been named Page One Editor, Elyse Tanouye is taking over Freedman’s spot as Deputy Managing Editor, and Dennis Berman will replace Tanouye as Corporate Editor. Rick Brooks was also named Senior Deputy Editor of the paper’s Money & Investing section.
Robert Thomson, Editor-in-Chief of Dow Jones & Company and Managing Editor of the Journal, had this to say about these moves:
Alix and Elyse are both great journalists and leaders. There was no tougher reporter than Alix Freedman, and her commitment to investigative reporting and enterprise journalism are renowned. Elyse transformed the Marketplace section of the Journal and is a beacon of integrity for all at Dow Jones. Dennis is a legendary reporter who will bring energy and deep knowledge to his new role, which is at the very heart of the paper. Rick, a talented and wise editor, will work closely with Francesco Guerrera, our new Editor of Money & Investing.
