Oran named banking team leader at Reuters
Carmel Crimmins, the financial services editor for Reuters in the Americas, sent out the following announcement on Friday:
We are thrilled to announce that Olivia Oran is being named Team Leader for banking coverage on our team, effective immediately.
Over the past year and a half, Olivia has dived gracefully and enthusiastically into the Wall Street banking beat, having joined Reuters as an M&A reporter in 2012. She has broken news on everything from multibillion-dollar deals, to Goldman Sachs’s clever business strategies, to big banks’ lobbyingin the Trump era. Her work covering the frenzied and flawed Facebook IPO in 2012 was nominated for a Loeb Award.
In her new role, Olivia will coordinate with teams here and abroad to break big stories, develop sector-wide initiative pieces and increase our multimedia presence. As a natural collaborator with great sources and people skills, we know she will do a fantastic job.
Before coming to Reuters, Olivia reported on deals and investments in technology companies at TheStreet and Mergermarket. She graduated from Cornell University with a degree in American History and began her career as an investment banking analyst in JPMorgan’s technology, media and telecom group in New York.
In fact, as a finance reporter, tech expert, art enthusiast, fitness buff, restaurant guru and overall tastemaker, there is not much happening that Olivia is not in-the-know about. Please wish her luck and success in the new gig!
