Alan Anspaugh, editor of news operations for The Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones, sent out the following staff announcement on Tuesday afternoon:
Chaz Repak, our Deputy Editor, News Operations, is advancing to the corporate front lines, becoming Dow Jones’s Director of Global Real Estate.
That’s good news, as Chaz brings 21 years of knowledge of DJ’s people, practices, bureaus and offices to the role, which is sure to benefit every staffer. Unfortunately, he leaves a News role in which he has worked passionately, creatively and tirelessly for our News teams around the globe. Chaz played a dominant role in unifying and greatly improving the Journal, Newswires and Marketwatch staffing and budgeting areas.
His familiarity with our far-flung bureaus and facilities was never more needed. In moving into his new role in mid-February, Chaz will visit and help even more of them.
Please join me in wishing him good luck and Godspeed.
