Boston Herald names deputy biz editor

May 22, 2006

The Boston Herald named Frank Quaratiello, a 10-year veteran of the paper, to become deputy business editor, according to an article in the Monday paper. Quaratiello, 38, has most recently served as copy desk chief for the Herald’s Business Today section.

“Frank has been an integral part of the success of this department over the past 10 months, especially in the way our pages look,” said Business Editor Greg Gatlin. “He is a natural leader, who brings an abundance of terrific ideas, a sharp news sense and the right eye to pull it all together.”

Quaratiello joined the Herald in 1996 as a news copy editor. He is a former regional city editor at the Concord Monitor in New Hampshire, where he coordinated coverage of news in 40 towns. Quaratiello has worked at several papers in California, including as a staff writer and features editor at the Gilroy Dispatch and a staff writer at the Menlo Park Country Almanac. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Stanford University.

“I’m looking forward to playing a greater role in shaping the Herald’s Business Today section and working more closely with our team of top-notch reporters, photographers, graphic artists and editors,” Quaratiello said in the story.
