BusinessWeek announces new international editorial managers

March 6, 2006

BusinessWeek announced new leadership for its international editorial staff as it launched Web sites for Europe and Asia. The changes are the first phase in a rollout later this year of customized Web sites for both regions.

In December, BusinessWeek restructured its international operations, which led to a number of layoffs. The restructuring was due to the closure of the print editions for Asia and Europe.

BusinessWeek“Our international editorial team has a crucial role to play in leading BusinessWeek into a new era in global coverage, one that involves producing the best business journalism in the world and delivering it over multiple channels, including our global print edition, local language print editions, and the robust new online editions we are creating for Europe and Asia,� says Stephen J. Adler, editor-in-chief of BusinessWeek, in a release.

The Europe and Asia Web sites will spotlight news stories, product reviews and well-known columnists. The Asia site puts an emphasis on coverage of investing, innovation and technology, including a blog called New Technologies in Asia. Another unique component is the special focus on China and India. The Europe site includes top stories from the region as well as an investing sub-channel with Standard & Poor’s Europe, and tech product reviews developed with CNET—an extension of BusinessWeek’s successful relationship with CNET in the U.S. market.
