Rupert Steiner has been hired by Dow Jones Media Group as EMEA bureau chief.
In his new role, Steiner will be based in London and lead a team charged with breaking stories and building content and readership for audiences in the UK and Europe. His focus will include retail and consumer goods, as well as regular interviews with captains of industry.
He will write for MarketWatch, but also contribute to other group publications including Barron’s and Financial News. He will report to Francesco Guerrera, head of International for DJMG, and work alongside Lina Saigol, head of corporate news.
“Hiring a journalist of Rupert’s caliber and standing is further proof of DJMG’s commitment to high-quality content,” said Almar Latour, publisher of Dow Jones Media Group. “Rupert will be instrumental in driving the growth of MarketWatch and Barron’s outside the U.S., bringing their unique brands of journalism to international readers.”
Steiner returns to News Corp. from The Guardian, where he launched a new business website, and was commercial features editor. Prior to that he was chief City correspondent at the Daily Mail, and a senior reporter at the Sunday Times writing the main City interview and Prufrock column.
His first book, about entrepreneurs, was published in 1998.
He was shortlisted for Business Journalist of the Year in 2016 London Press Club Awards & 2015 Press Gazette Awards and won the Business Journalist of the Year Award in the World Leadership Forum Contest in 2003
