Dow Jones AME takes on financial services coverage
Linda Fung, the managing editor of North American equities at Dow Jones Newswires, sent out the following staff announcement on Tuesday afternoon:
I am pleased to announce that Assistant Managing Editor Brendan Intindola will be taking on a new assignment at Dow Jones Newswires. Brendan will have overall responsibility for the financial services team, which includes the reporters writing about the investment banks, commercial banks, insurance companies, hedge funds and consumer finance companies. He will work closely with other Newswires editors and The Wall Street Journal editors to ensure that this coverage is put to the fullest use throughout all the platforms at Dow Jones. The move recognizes the strong job Brendan has done over the past few months overseeing the equities market reporting team.
Brendan comes with a wealth of experience covering the business world. From 1993 to 2005, Brendan was a reporter and editor at Reuters News Service, where he covered mergers and acquisitions, Wall Street firms, U.S. equity markets, corporate governance and the media beat. After he left Reuters, he worked as the New York-based media relations contact for FINRA and predecessor company NYSE Regulation and also was a senior public relations specialist for Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP.
He is a graduate of Rutgers University, where he received a B.A. in history.
Brendan will report to me. Please join me in wishing him all the best in his new position.
