I’ll soon be moving on after 13 wonderful years of working for Dow Jones Newswires and contributing to The Wall Street Journal in the EMEA and Americas regions. Thanks to all of you who have made these the best years of my life.
It’s been a privilege to work with so many gifted reporters and editors around the world, covering energy and commodities companies and markets.
