Tracy AllowayJoe Weisenthal, managing editor of Bloomberg Media’s markets coverage, sent the following announcement to the staff on Friday:

I am thrilled to announce that Tracy Alloway is joining us as Executive Editor of Bloomberg Media’s markets coverage. Based in New York, she will oversee editorial content for markets on our new digital destination and work side-by-side with me as we build out our vision and strategy.

Tracy comes to us from the Financial Times, where she has spent the last six years, serving most recently as the US financial correspondent covering markets and Wall Street. She was previously a London-based capital markets correspondent for the FT, reporting on European bank funding, structured finance, collateral-related issues and credit derivatives. Bottom line: Tracy is incredibly smart. As soon as she joins, I plan to ask her a thousand questions about all this stuff that I’ve been too embarrassed to ask anyone else before.

She has also served as deputy editor of FT Alphaville, the site’s financial blog that just about everyone in the industry reads. To this day, Alphaville remains one of the greatest examples there is of a traditional media organization doing something innovative and amazing on the web.

All of Tracy’s above experience makes her the perfect person to help us produce some stellar markets coverage for the web. She is hardworking, a leader in the digital space and will be an incredible asset to all of us here at Bloomberg Media. I could not be more excited she’s decided to join us.

Please stop by when Tracy arrives and welcome her to Bloomberg.
