Team!Some exciting news. After several years of elevating Business Insider and INSIDER with his excellent policy coverage, we’re promoting Bob Bryan into a newly created role: Commentary Editor for Insider Inc. He will report to me. He will transition to his new role over the next few weeks.Bob’s mission will be to publish commentary and op-eds that cement the perception of Business Insider and INSIDER as homes for smart, surprising, conversation-changing ideas and arguments about policy, economics, politics, and business.Bob will recruit and maintain a network of top tier freelance contributors and columnists.The Internet is full of lightweight hot takes, boring pile-ons, cynical partisanship and outrage porn. No one needs any more of that, and we won’t be publishing any of it.We want to improve the world through great writing that illuminates with insights, honestly attempts to persuade, and makes what might seem like dry, cold topics more human and relevant to our readers.If you know writers who can do that kind of thing, please send them Bob’s way!
