Editor Lou Brancaccio wrote, “I am very pleased to announce that Features Editor Elisa Williams will take on the responsibilities of business editor as well.

“Elisa brings to the table solid management experience (she’s been both an assistant metro editor as well as working in her current position) and also a wealth of business experience.

“Please join with me in congratulating Elisa. She will take over the position after Business Editor Julia Anderson retires February 26.

“We also will begin looking for a business reporter. Elisa will be in charge of that search.”
