Stephen Adler, senior vice president and editorial director for the Thomson Reuters professional division, sent out the following announcement Tuesday afternoon:
“I’m delighted to announce that Amy Stevens, formerly a senior editor at The Wall Street Journal and Conde Nast Portfolio, is joining my team as Executive Editor of Thomson Reuters Professional News. In this role, Amy will work to build a world-class news operation to benefit customers of Thomson Reuters Legal, Tax & Accounting and Healthcare & Science businesses.
“A graduate of Yale University and UC Berkeley’s Boalt Hall School of Law, Amy spent 16 years at The Wall Street Journal, where she began her journalism career as a reporter on the legal beat. In addition to covering major legal stories, she launched a popular weekly column called ‘Lawyers and Clients.’ An accomplished feature writer, she later became an enterprise reporter for The Journal’s front page and subsequently served as Deputy Page One Editor and then Editor of the Weekend Journal.
“She left the Journal in 2006 to become Deputy Editor of Conde Nast Portfolio and most recently served as Supervising Editor of NPR’s Planet Money, the award-winning multimedia project devoted to coverage of the global economy.
“As lead editor of the new Thomson Reuters Professional NewsCenter, Amy will work closely with me and with new Chief Operating Officer Mike Bender to leverage and customize Reuters News to serve Thomson Reuters Professional customers, create additional, high-value journalism within the Professional division, and collaborate with our division colleagues to enhance current products and develop powerful new offerings. With Amy and Mike on board, I’m more excited than ever about the opportunities ahead.”
