Chu, ex Bloomberg, named editor of SF Business Times
Patrick Chu, who left Bloomberg News earlier this year after more than a decade with the company, has been named editor of the San Francisco Business Times.
He replaces Steve Symanovich.
A story on its website states, “Patrick worked for more than 16 years at Bloomberg News, starting as West Coast Bureau Chief in San Francisco in 1997 before serving with Bloomberg in Washington, New York and Tokyo.
“Chu says he is looking forward to returning to San Francisco and leading the Business Times’ news operation. ‘The San Francisco Bay Area is the most compelling and innovative business marketplace in the world, and I can’t think of a better time to be in San Francisco covering business news,’ Chu said. ‘I am fortunate to be working with our excellent team of accomplished editors and reporters, backed by the resources of American City Business Journals.’
“San Francisco Business Times publisher Mary Huss said: ‘Patrick brings high standards for journalistic excellence, and a passion for great reporting, as well as a keen grasp of business. He is joining us to lead our newsroom at an important time, as we continue to innovate as a digital-first media operation.’
“While at Bloomberg, Chu was also Managing Editor of Global Recruitment and Training in New York, Global Politics and Government Managing Editor in Washington, D.C., and for the past nine years worked at Bloomberg’s Asian Bureau in Tokyo, where he had the roles of Asia Managing Editor, Top News Editor and Asia Billionaires Editor in Tokyo, among other roles at the company.”
