Patrick Chu, who worked at Bloomberg News for more than 16 years and was recently its Asian Billionaires editor, has left the company.
Chu had been San Francisco bureau chief, managing editor for training in New York, managing editor for the economy in Washington and managing editor for Asia in Tokyo. He was also global managing editor for energy and commodities companies.
Before that, Chu was the business editor of The Oregonian from 1990 to 1997, and he was a business reporter for USA Today from 1982 to 1990.
He has degrees from the University of Hawaii and American University.
Chu has not changed his job status on LinkedIn or Facebook, but two people with knowledge of his departure confirmed it. Chu did not respond to an email earlier Tuesday seeking comment.
