Seattle Times biz journalist LaViolette to retire
Suzanne LaViolette, the business news editor at the Seattle Times, is retiring later this month after 27 years with the paper.
Her last day is March 29.
“In my 27 years at The Seattle Times (March 1992 – March 2019) I’ve had the privilege of working with outstanding business editors — Steve Dunphy, Debbie Van Tassel, Rob Weisman, Becky Bisbee and Rami Grunbaum – and an amazing group of smart, hard-charging business reporters, backed up by talented desk editors and page designers,” said LaViolette in an email.
LaViolette worked at The Asian Wall Street Journal in Hong Kong for about six years before coming to Seattle.
Bisbee, who left the paper in 2016, called LaViolette a “real pro.”
“Suzy La Violette has been the hub of the Business department all these many years,” said Bisbee. “Nothing happened without her.”
