He has a BA from Yale and an MA in East Asian studies from Harvard and will be moving to New York to assume his new role, which is effective immediately.

In addition, Cesca Antonelli, currently Washington bureau chief, also moves to New York to become chief of staff to Hays and the beat reporting executive editors.

Antonelli started at Bloomberg in 1999 as the late general assignment reporter. She quickly joined the tech group, and she has since held the titles of team leader for technology, managing editor for companies news in Europe and then in the Americas.

Antonelli will start as chief of staff Nov. 1 and will be moving to New York in the coming year. She attended University of Pittsburgh.
