International Biz Times names Crowley editor of UK edition
International Business Times announced Wednesday that John Crowley has been named as the new editor-in-chief for the UK edition.
Crowley will oversee the UK edition starting March 29 and will be based out of IBT Media’s newly expanded Canary Wharf office.
Most recently, Crowley served as digital editor EMEA at The Wall Street Journal where he managed the output across the title. He will report directly to co-founder and managing director of IBT Media for EMEA Dev Pragad.
“He is the ideal leader to take us to the next level,” added global editor-in-chief Peter S. Goodman in a statement. “His dedication to exploring stories using all the digital tools, plus his truly global perspective will yield terrific and engrossing journalism. We are greatly excited to gain his talents and vision.”
Crowly said he wants the publication to break more exclusives and get refreshing new angles on stories. “But as the media landscape changes before our eyes, I also want to explore innovation and new ways to tell stories,” said Crowley.
