Tiziana Barghini will be leaving Reuters at the end of October.

Barghini was most recently a markets and economics editor who coordinated coverage of America’s municipal bond market, based in New York City.

Reuters announced earlier this month that it was going to cut approximately 5 percent of its editorial staff, or about 140 positions.

She spent most of her 25-year Reuters career in Europe, working and reporting from different countries including Italy and Spain. In the mid-1980s, Barghini started writing in Italian about Italy’s debt market, reporting on a lira and sterling crisis in 1992 and the Italian “Clean Hands” corruption scandal.

She moved to Spain to join Reuters’ English-language team covering the expansion of the Spanish economy. On returning to Milan, she helped to launch a general news service in Italian for an online audience. She served as editor for Southern Europe from 2007 to 2010, overseeing coverage from Portugal, Spain, Italy and Greece.

Barghini moved to New York City in 2010 to work as editor in charge for the Reuters Summits round-table interviews with key leaders in different industries, countries and topics ranging from Africa to technology companies.

“I consider myself very lucky to have worked with a great cast of excellent reporters and editors,” said Barghini in an email to Talking Biz News. “Now it is time to move on something new.”
