Quartz hires Griswold as a business reporter
Quartz editor in chief Kevin Delaney sent out the following announcement on Tuesday:
I’m very happy to announce that Alison Griswold is joining Quartz as a business reporter in NYC on Nov. 30.
Ali comes to us from Slate, where she’s one of the main business and economics writers and covers a wide range of topics. Her recent reporting includes pieces on Uber such as this one based on a public-records request, an in-depth look at Venmo scams, and a chummy open letter to McDonald’s when it stopped reporting monthly same-store sales. Ali’s review of Robert Reich’s latest book appeared in the Sunday NYT book review this past weekend. She earlier wrote for Business Insider, Thomson Reuters, and Forbes, and has a bachelor’s degree in English from Yale. You can follow her @alisongriswold.
At Quartz, we expect Ali’s coverage to extend widely based on news or other interesting business developments, and that it will develop into specific obsessions over time.
Please join me in welcoming her!
