CoinDesk names Reynolds its editor in chief
Kevin Reynolds has been named CoinDesk’s editor-in-chief, where he will be overseeing more than 50 journalists based around the world.
He previously was global news editor at CoinDesk, which publishes between 550 to 750 articles each month with an online readership exceeding 13 million unique monthly viewers.
Before CoinDesk, Reynolds was at Bloomberg News for over 23 years, where he started, scaled, and ran First Word, a 250-person global news/analysis service for professional clients. By the time Reynolds left Bloomberg, First Word had won two CEO awards.
Reynolds also started Bloomberg’s Speed Desk, which Joe Weisenthal cited as a “mindblowing operation” that sends flash headlines on breaking news from press releases, Securities and Exchange Commission filings, websites, and other media, as well as Bloomberg’s assignment and weekend staff.
He turned around two other operations and started numerous others, including the training program that all Bloomberg News hires worldwide are required to take.
He shares a patent for a content management system he helped design and is a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps.
