Business Insider’s Hadi hired as NY Times news director for business
New York Times business editor Ellen Pollock sent out the following announcement on Tuesday:
We’re thrilled to announce that Mohammed Hadi will join Business Day as news director, a new position.
Mo comes to us from Business Insider, where he is executive editor and oversees financial, markets and companies coverage. In his new gig, he’ll put his digital experience to work, helping to coordinate coverage as we strive to make our report faster and more responsive to the needs of our audience, both online and in print.
Prior to joining Business Insider in 2015, Mo was an editor and team leader at Bloomberg in Asia and New York. And before that he was an editor and reporter for The Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones Newswires.
Mo graduated from the University of Richmond and has a master’s from Columbia’s School of International and Public Affairs. He lives in Westchester with his wife, Lauren, and two children.
Not since Adolph S. Ochs acquired The New York Times in August 1896 has anyone done so much due diligence before a job change. Mo already knew Pui-Wing and David Enrich from his past lives, but he has grilled quite a few others at the paper in recent months. We intend to make him cough up any juicy tidbits he has learned along the way.
Please join us in welcoming Mo. He’ll start on May 21.
