Todd Larsen Steps Down at Dow Jones

Todd Larsen is stepping down as president of Dow Jones & Company. Larsen has been with the company since 1999, serving as president since 2010.

“Todd has been an inspiring leader during his time at Dow Jones, providing guidance and insight when there has been a paucity of prescience in our industry,” said Robert Thomson, editor-in-chief of Dow Jones and managing editor of The Wall Street Journal, in a press release. “He has been a comradely colleague and played a particularly important role in our successful digital transition.”

“I believe strongly in the company’s products and brands, and I have been blessed to work with a wonderful group of talented people,” said Larsen. “I look forward to watching the continued success of the organization in the years to come.”
