Bloomberg MarketsGillen’s position at the Times has not yet been formally announced, according to an employee of its business news desk, but we hear it’s to be finance editor.

Gillen was considered one of the top editors at Bloomberg News as assistant managing editor of Bloomberg Markets magazine since 2000. He was also the bureau chief in Hong Kong from 1995 to 1998 for the business news service and worked in Bloomberg’s London bureau from 1992 to 1995.

He joined Bloomberg from Bond Buyer, where he was one of TJFR’s 30 under 30 business journalists back in 1991. He had worked at American Banker/Bond Buyer as a correspondent, New York reporter and a copy editor.

One writer for the Bloomberg Markets magazine called Gillen “the best editor on the magazine — by far.”
