Globe and Mail’s biz desk adds two reporters
Derek DeCloet, editor of The Globe and Mail’s Report on Business, sent out the following announcement:
We’re delighted to announce the following additions to our newsroom.
Marcy Nicholson is joining The Globe as a reporter on the new cannabis subscription product. Marcy is a veteran business journalist who has been with Reuters since 2005, mostly in New York, where she broke news and wrote analyses on commodities ranging from the volatile sugar and coffee markets to gold. Prior to her time in New York, she was Reuters’ one-person Winnipeg bureau. A native of Vancouver Island, Marcy has also worked at newspapers in B.C. and Manitoba, as a teacher in three countries, and (briefly) as a business owner in Kenya.
She will be based in our Calgary bureau and will report to Aron Yeomanson, while working under the day-to-day direction of Rob Gilroy, editor of our Cannabis Pro news service, which launches on Monday. Marcy arrives in October.
David Milstead is joining our staff as a reporter. David requires no introduction for most of you: he has been writing for the Globe regularly as a freelance writer since 2009, primarily for the Globe Investor team.
David was finance editor of Denver’s Rocky Mountain News until the newspaper closed in February 2009. He joined the News in April 2001 from The Wall Street Journal, where he worked for the paper’s Southeast Journal regional section. He has also worked in his native South Carolina and in Dayton and Cincinnati, Ohio. He’s a graduate of Oberlin College in Ohio with majors in economics and political science. David has individually or jointly won nine awards from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW) and passed the Level I exam in the Chartered Financial Analyst program.
At the moment, David is working with Aron and Rob on cannabis industry coverage but will assume a new beat this fall, once he completes his move to Toronto from Denver.
These hires enhance the depth and experience of our business reporting team. Please make Marcy and David feel welcome at The Globe.
