Peter Goodman Named Editor of International Business Times

Peter Goodman has been named the new editor-in-chief of The International Business Times. Goodman joins the site from The Huffington Post, where he most recently served as executive business editor.

Goodman previously served as The New York Times’ national economics correspondent. Prior to that he spent 10 years at The Washington Post.

“International Business Times is committed to the dual principles of truly global coverage in a digitally-native environment, delivering our readers the most relevant and timely business news,” said Johnathan Davis, co-founder and chief content officer of IBT’s parent, IBT Media. “Throughout his career, Peter has demonstrated deep understanding of both these realms, and we welcome his leadership in this new role.”

“I couldn’t be more excited by the challenge of leading the newsroom to the next level,” added Goodman.

Goodman begins at IBT later this month.
