Jordyn Holman

New York Times business editor Ellen Pollock sent the following out on Monday:

We are delighted to announce that Jordyn Holman will be joining The Times to cover consumers and retailers, a beat that’s as much about how we shop and what we buy as it is about the economic forces shaping our lives.

Jordyn comes to us from Bloomberg News, where she’s reported on retail since early 2019 and covered the most important stories on that beat in the last few years: She wrote the Bloomberg Businessweek cover story on Ben & Jerry’s corporate activism during the 2020 summer protests, and has also reported on labor movements, including with an assignment that had her camped out at a Waffle House at 3 a.m. in Bessemer, Ala., as Amazon workers there prepared to vote on joining a union. Her work on the #BuyBlack movement has been recognized by SABEW and NABJ.

Jordyn was a participant in The New York Times Student Journalism Institute in 2016 soon after she graduated from the University of Southern California.

Jordyn has been based in Atlanta for the last two years and will return to New York for this assignment.
