New York editor Ruth leaves Xconomy
João-Pierre S. Ruth, the New York editor for tech news site Xconomy, has left to pursue another interest.
Ruth had been with Xconomy since June 2011 and the editor of its New York site since March 2013.
“For me, it was time to chase other opportunities, and take a plunge into something new,” said Ruth in an email to Talking Biz News. “What I am working on now is still in the developmental phase; when it’s time to let the world know, I shall spread the word. It was a tough choice. As I said in my farewell piece, there are many more stories from the New York startup scene waiting to be told.”
Before Xconomy, Ruth worked for more than 13 years at NJBiz, covering stories on media, technology, telecommunications, marketing and retail throughout New Jersey. While there, he won a Society of Professional Journalists New Jersey chapter first place award for business reporting in 2001.
Ruth is a Rutgers University graduate.
