Gregory Roth, a senior editor and correspondent for Reuters, has left the news organization for a job at JP Morgan Asset Management, where he is vice president of media relations.

In his farewell note to colleagues, Roth wrote:

“I also very much look forward to watching the group’s success and your individual success from afar. You are an amazing group of people.  Despite the occasional stress, at the end of the day, what I’ll take away most from this experience is the people I’ve had the great fortune of working together with.

“I look forward to seeing you again soon (even after the final round!)”

At Reuters, Roth wrote about “fresh capital” and the pension funds, sovereign funds and endowments that invest in private equity.

Prior to joining Reuters, Roth was a senior producer for The Wall Street Journal, where he was responsible for the News Hub, a twice-daily live business video program that appears on WSJ.com. Prior to that, he was a Web editor and business producer for NYTimes.com. He has also worked for CNBC and the Financial Times.

Roth has an M.B.A. from Columbia Business School, a Masters from Columbia’s Journalism School and a B.A. from Duke.
