Business reporter Marc Stiles has joined the Puget Sound Business Journal as a staff writer covering commercial real estate and government.

Erin Van Bronkhurst of the paper writes, “Stiles reported for the Seattle-based Daily Journal of Commerce for a total of eight years, covering commercial real estate, Sound Transit and Seattle City Hall.

“He has written about or worked in real estate for about 15 years, including a short stint as a junior broker for Colliers International, which he said ‘gives me some perspective on what a broker goes through.’

“‘What I find interesting about commercial real estate is that the people in the business are skyline changers,’ he said, ‘and to write about something as important as a sense of place is to me very rewarding.’

“Stiles’ arrival will give PSBJ colleague Jeanne Lang Jones a chance to concentrate on the retail and residential real estate beats.

“During a 25-year career in newspapers, Stiles has won 33 awards for writing, editing, photography and page design.”
