Shelly Banjo is leaving The Wall Street Journal and joining Quartz as a finance reporter. Banjo had been with the Journal since 2007, most recently as a corporate reporter focusing on retail.
“Shelly will lead our coverage of the future of finance, focusing on how factors including technology, changes in consumer behavior, and regulation have the potential to fundamentally reshape the business of banks and the underpinning of investing, currencies, and payments,” wrote Quartz’s editor, Kevin Delaney, in a memo.
Banjo starts January 12. You can read Delaney’s full note below.
