Stephanie Gleason has been hired to cover bankruptcy and distressed companies. She previously worked as a reporter for The Wall Street Journal covering the same topics since 2011.
Prior to that, Gleason was a business reporter for Capital News Service. She has a bachelor’s degree in English from Loyola Marymount and a master’s degree in journalism from the University of Maryland.
Vishesh Kumar has been hired as a senior correspondent covering activist situations.
For the past eight years, Kumar has been a general partner at Wofi Capital, a venture capital and private equity investor in technology companies.
Kumar previously worked at The Journal as a tech reporter from 2007 to 2009 and was an internet and tech reporter at TheStreet from 2006 to 2007.
