Wall Street Journal Money & Investing editor Francesco Guerrera sent out the following promotions:
We are delighted to announce some significant additions to the editing ranks of Money & Investing:
Russell Adams has been named Investing Editor. A San Diego native, Russell started his journalism career in the late 1990s as a legal-affairs reporter at the San Diego Daily Transcript. He moved to New York in 2001 to attend Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. After graduation Russell went to work at the SportsBusiness Journal, where he wrote about the business of Major League Baseball and sports media. He joined The Wall Street Journal in 2005, and spent the next three years covering sports for Pursuits and Weekend Journal. In 2008 he joined the Media & Marketing bureau, where he wrote primarily about newspapers and magazines. While on the markets desk, Russell has periodically dipped back into reporting, writing an a-hed about a 23-year game of tag and an Arena cover about the enduring appeal of “The Shawshank Redemption.” Russell graduated from Georgetown University with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish literature. He lives in Manhattan with his wife, Loren, and three-year-old daughter, Leah.
Dan Fitzpatrick has been named Deputy Investing Editor. Dan joined the Journal in 2008 and for six years covered various U.S. banks, from Bank of America to J.P. Morgan Chase, becoming a fixture on Page One and C1 by breaking the biggest news on the beat. Earlier this year he joined the investing team to cover pensions and immediately broke news about how Calpers, the largest pension fund in the nation, is retreating from hedge funds and other complicated investment holdings. Dan started in the Atlanta bureau and moved to New York in 2009. He is a graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism. An avid surfer, Dan can be spotted in the chilly waters off Long Beach on any given weekend. Dan lives with his wife in Queens, New York.
Geoffrey Rogow has been named Markets Desk Editor. Geoffrey currently leads the Journal’s Real Time finance group, where he oversees a team of more than a dozen editors and reporters who help drive real-time finance and markets coverage. He also writes and is a regular host on WSJ Live. Geoff was previously an editor and reporter for DJ FX Trader, where he broke stories on proposed changes to U.S. economic data releases. Earlier, as an economics reporter in Sydney, he covered everything from Australia’s housing boom to a devastating earthquake in Christchurch. He also wrote an a-hed about lifeguards who march in speedos. Before his Sydney stint, Geoff was a markets reporter in New York during the 2008 market crash. He won two Dow Jones’ awards for his coverage of the growing high-frequency trading industry. A native of Marblehead, Mass., Geoff is a graduate of Washington and Lee University, where he received a bachelor’s degree in business journalism and interned at the Roanoke Times. He also tells a lot of bad jokes on Twitter @grogow.

They start next week!
