February 24, 2010

Krishna Guha, who is the U.S. economics editor for the Financial Times, is leaving the paper for a job with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, reports Sudeep Reedy of the Wall Street Journal.

Reedy writes, “Guha has been at the FT since 1994. In his latest role as the FT’s U.S. economics editor and deputy Washington bureau chief, he covered economic policy in the Bush and Obama administrations along with the U.S. central bank, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. He was previously an editorial writer for the FT, political correspondent in the U.K., Lex columnist and Bombay correspondent. He has degrees from Cambridge and Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.

“Guha will take the position overseeing the New York Fed’s communications previously held by Calvin Mitchell, who left the bank in November to become global head of corporate affairs at Thomson Reuters.”
