Denver Post names new biz editor
Kristi Arellano, the deputy business editor at the Denver Post, has been promoted to business editor, according to a memo from editor Greg Moore.
In the memo, posted online by Michael Roberts of Westword, Moore states, “Since 2007, Kristi has been the deputy business editor to Steve McMillan. They have done a great job producing prize-winning business coverage and we expect that success to continue under her leadership. Her promotion creates an opening for deputy business editor.
“We will post that job shortly, but let Kristi know if you’re interested. We will announce Steve’s new duties in coming days. Steve has produced an excellent business section and under his leadership, staff stories graced page one frequently. We’re looking forward to his continued contributions in a new role as we move forward.”
Arellano joined The Post in 2000. She covered a variety of business beats, including retail and real estate, before becoming an editor in 2007. She is an occasional contributor to Viva Colorado, The Denver Post’s bilingual news publication.
Arellano is a Colorado native and a graduate of the University of Denver. Her career path has included stops at the Denver Business Journal and Pueblo Chieftain.
