Mike Miller, senior editor for features and WSJ weekend, sent out the following announcement on Wednesday:

I’m pleased to announce Erik Holm is our new deputy editor, weekend business and finance.  As Emily Gitter‘s deputy, Erik will bring his exceptional creativity and deep knowledge of companies and markets to our new weekend business and finance section and our broader effort to reimagine the way we cover business and finance over the weekend, on our digital platforms and in print.

Erik currently runs MoneyBeat, the Journal’s home for stellar, up-to-the minute coverage of the markets. He joined the WSJ eight years ago, first as an insurance reporter for Newswires and then in a variety of editing roles for the wire, the paper and our website.  He worked previously as an editor and reporter at Bloomberg, and covered local politics for Newsday on Long Island. He got his start at a trade publication covering nuclear waste disposal, and also had a stint at a tabloid in Cape Town, South Africa. He was enlisted as an expert on parrot smuggling for This American Life and has performed stand-up at the Comedy Cellar. Erik lives in Brooklyn with his wife and two young children.
