Adrienne Carter is now the deputy business editor of the New York Times.

Carter had been the paper’s international business editor and had been stationed in London since early 2016.

Here is what business editor Ellen Pollock said in a note to the staff:

The good news here is that we all know Adrienne well, and that she knows all of our secrets–even mine.  (The bad news is that she knows all of our secrets–even mine.) But the better news is that Adrienne is a fantastic editor and colleague who will be invaluable as we continue to build and  reconsider our business coverage.

Adrienne arrived at The Times in late 2010. She started as a deputy DealBook editor with a shift that seemed to run from 6:30 a.m. to midnight. She became news editor at Biz Day about two years later, and has been international business editor since 2014. Previously Adrienne worked in Chicago at Businessweek, which she joined in 2004. I met Adrienne in 2007, just before the financial crisis came along. By that time she was deputy finance editor in New York and was putting quotes around the word “subprime.”  Adrienne also did stints at Morgan Stanley and Bloomberg.

Not everyone is happy about this appointment.  Some of her colleagues abroad are pretty pissed, and Danny Hakim actually picked up and moved to New York so she could still edit him.

That said, I think we all will benefit from having Adrienne in New York.  Dean Murphy put it this way: “When Adrienne worked on DealBook, she made it hum. When she ran the BizDay news desk, she infused urgency and smarts into everything she touched. And most recently, as
international business editor, she has brought muscle and rigor to our foreign coverage. Throughout it all, Adrienne has been a passionate
advocate for business news, and the people across The Times who produce it. Prepare for more great things to come as she returns to New York.”
