Barron’s has hired Neal Templin as an editor and reporter.

He has been freelancing for Barron’s — writing a retirement column — and The Wall Street Journal for the past two years. He previously was finance editor in the Americas for Reuters.

Before that, Templin spent nearly 30 years with The Journal. His last job there was leading the New York coverage team of eight reporters since December 2016. He took over the former Greater New York section in June 2016 after serving as deputy standards editor.

He also served as a Page One editor, Dallas bureau chief, editor of the Texas Journal and two stints as personal finance editor. He joined the Journal in 1989 as an automotive reporter and later moved to Dallas, where he covered technology and then commercial real estate for the Journal. He also wrote the Cheapskate column.

A Los Angeles native, Templin started his career at the Imperial Valley Press, where he covered agriculture, and then the El Paso Times.
