CNNMoney.com managing editor Lex Haris sent out the following staff announcement on Monday:

I’m pleased to announce that we have a new member of the tech team: Adrian Covert will be joining on December 3.

Adrian comes to us from Gizmodo, and brings a deep knowledge of tech trends, news sense, and sharp writing style (the headline “Hey Netflix, get your s*** together” was one of our favorites). And we all loved a sly line on his resume noting that he was Time Person of the Year in 2006 — back when YOU were too.

Adrian will be on the gadget beat, focusing on news and reviews about the steady stream of devices churned out by Apple and all of its rivals. It’s an important piece of our tech coverage that Stacy’s been pushing for, bolstering the already important pillars that we cover so well: Social media, start-ups, security, mobile, as well as the deep Big Tech expertise from Fortune and consumer offerings from CNN.com. It’s no wonder the section has had such explosive growth – up 98% in the past two years.

Please extend a warm welcome.
