He started on Monday.
Phillips joins the Times from Vice, where he was editor in chief of Vice Money since its launch in October 2016.
Before starting Vice Money, Phillips was at Atlantic Media’s Quartz where he was finance and markets editor. Prior to joining Quartz in 2012, he spent seven years as a reporter at The Wall Street Journal on the money and investing team where his coverage included detailing the aftermath of the 2008 housing crisis.
Phillips also covered the January 2009 splashdown of U.S. Airways Flight 1549 into the Hudson River and Hillary Clinton’s bid for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008. He caught the markets bug as lead writer for the Journal’s MarketBeat blog.
He also worked at the Albany Business Review and the Bakersfield Californian.
