Carol Dean, a news editor for Dow Jones Newswires in London, sent an email to her colleagues that she is leaving the news service on Friday.
To add to the proliferation of recent farewells, I too am bidding you all a fond farewell this Friday after 8 ½ years, mostly covering the rollercoaster ride in capital markets.
To see me on my way, I would like to invite you to share a drink with me at the Hoop and Grapes in Farringdon Street the following Friday, September 13th, from 5pm, alongside Martin Essex and Nick Hastings.
I will miss the camaraderie, humour, brilliance of many colleagues.
Dean had lead a five-person team in London focusing on corporate bonds and will spearhead Newswires’ pan-regional coverage of government bonds.
Dean joined Dow Jones Newswires from the company’s Financial Information Services division, where she reported on European private-equity buyouts, buyins and refinancing for the division’s specialist newsletters. Before that, she was editor of TelecomFinance magazine, a Thompson Stanley publication, from 2001 to 2004.
Dean also has held reporting positions at CFO Europe, International Financing Review (IFR) and other Thomson Corp. publications following a banking career from 1983 to 1990. She is a graduate of the City of London University with degrees in economics and law.
