“Berkowitz would later be promoted to the New York Newsday Business News’ bureau chief before exiting in 2005 to become a manager at Deloitte Services, where he produced newsletters, wrote speeches and shaped internal communication strategy for the accounting firm.
“Since 2007, Berkowitz, who loved to travel and was especially enamored with Paris, worked as the personal finance editor at Bottom Line Personal, a consumer newsletter that provides advice from experts on a host of topics to its more than 400,000 subscribers.”
