David Gillen has been tapped by the New York Times to replace Tim O’Brien – who left for The Huffington Post – as its new Sunday Business Editor. Gillen came to the Times from Bloomberg News in 2007. He’s been Deputy Business Editor for the paper since last year.

Larry Ingrassia, Business Editor for the Times, had this to say about Gillen’s promotion:

As reporters who have worked with Dave on the finance team will attest – and other reporters in Bizday will soon have the pleasure of learning – he has a magical touch with copy, even when things are flying fast and furious.
