Matthew Lynch of Capital New York reports Thursday that Kurt Soller has been hired as the deputy editor of the Etc. section in Bloomberg Businessweek.
Pompeo writes, “Soller will join Businessweek from New York magazine’s women’s-interest standalone web portal, The Cut, where he worked as a features editor. He will report to ‘Etc.’ editor Emma Rosenblum, who oversaw the section’s relaunch in May.
“Herself a veteran of New York and, more recently, Glamour, Rosenblum has further moved the back-of-book section away from its earliest iteration, which often featured tales of the wacky super-rich, toward more workaday fare. The Oct. 7 issue featured guides to both pocket squares and hard ciders.
“A fashion-week regular whose distinct bespectacled visage is favorite of street-style photographers, Soller starts Nov. 11.
“‘We’re thrilled to have Kurt join the Etc. team. He’s a talented writer and editor whose work we’ve admired at the Cut,’ said Businessweek editor Josh Tyrangiel in statement relayed through a spokeswoman. ‘He really understands print, digital, and mobile, and from what we can tell he dresses pretty well, too, which should come in handy for our fashion coverage. We’re really excited to welcome him to Bloomberg Businessweek.'”
