Delaney leaves post as co-CEO and editor in chief at Quartz
Kevin Delaney is leaving his post as co-CEO and editor in chief at Quartz, according to reports.
Delaney, who co-founded the business media organization in 2012, is departing to pursue other projects, the company announced Monday.
Delaney was a reporter at The Wall Street Journal for a decade, with that time split between Paris and San Francisco. While covering internet companies such as Google, Twitter and Facebook, he became convinced that newspapers could do more to ensure that good journalism thrives in the digital age.
He became managing editor of WSJ.com, where he led efforts that helped greatly expand the Journal’s online readership and championed innovative journalism projects that went on to win prizes.
Early in his career, Delaney was a reporter for SmartMoney magazine and a TV producer in Montreal.
He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and has a degree in history from Yale University.
Quartz is now searching for a new editor in chief.
