Bloomberg Businessweek hires Keehn as its new features editor
Bloomberg Businessweek editor Ellen Pollock sent out the following announcement on Monday:
We’re excited to announce that Jeremy Keehn is joining Bloomberg Businessweektoday as a features editor. Jeremy was most recently a news and business editor at NewYorker.com, where he edited writers we’re sure you’ve read (Suroweicki, Cassidy, Vauhini Vara (wrote our “Coders Like Us” cover story), and Paul Ford). Previously he was digital director and editor at Harper’s Magazine, where he edited, among other articles, Sam Frank‘s “Power and Paranoia in Silicon Valley” and Sarah Dohrmann‘s “Lost Girls” (Longreads “Best of 2015”). A former senior editor at The Walrus, he wrote for that magazine one of the longest articles you could ever want to finish about toilets for its May 2014 issue. (It won a Canadian National Magazine Award.)
And yes, Jeremy’s from North of the border, speaks French, and completed his masters in British Columbia. His hiring is intended to fortify our Canadian Mafia — the friendliest and most pleasant organized journalists around. If you wish to discuss Justin Trudeau, he’s definitely your guy.
We’re thrilled he’s joining the team! Please stop by his desk on 4 to say hi.
