Reuters names new deputy Washington editor
Kevin Drawbaugh has been appointed to the new job of deputy Washington editor, Reuters Professional News, effective immediately.
In this role Drawbaugh will share in the running of a new team reporting on tax and accounting in the United States and legal issues in Washington.
Drawbaugh comes from within the tax & accounting team where he has helped to lead coverage since before its launch in June this year. Long active on Capitol Hill, where he regularly speaks one-on-one with key players, Drawbaugh led the Washington financial regulation team that broke dozens of stories on the tussle over how Wall Street will be governed in the future.
He has been a Reuters correspondent also in New York, Chicago and London. He covered Enron and other corporate scandals as lead Reuters reporter at the Securities and Exchange Commission.
In 2000 Drawbaugh wrote “Brands in the Balance,“ a survey of corporate brand marketing that was translated into five languages and is used in university marketing courses in the United States and Asia.
Drawbaugh has a master’s degree in U.S. history from Indiana University and a bachelor’s degree in economics and communication from American University. He has studied at The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and at Cemanahuac Comunidad Educativa in Cuernavaca, Mexico.
