Adam Auriemma is leaving The Wall Street Journal for Fusion, where he’ll serve as deputy editor. He had most recently served as the Journal’s New York deputy bureau chief. Prior to that, Auriemma served as a managing editor for The Daily Beast.
“Adam will play a critical leadership role in overseeing daily editorial operations at Fusion,” wrote Fusion’s editor-in-chief, Jane Spencer, in a memo. “He’ll be working closely with me to redefine Fusion’s digital content, and will work with editors, reporters and journalists across all of our teams. As we expand our coverage in 2015, Adam will also lead our coverage around money, careers and personal finance for Fusion’s young, diverse audience.”
