Stevens named global editor of companies coverage at Reuters
Alessandra Galloni, global news editor at Reuters, sent out the following announcement to the staff:
I am delighted to announce that Amy Stevens will be taking on our new role of Global Editor, Companies Coverage Strategy, reporting to me.
As previously mentioned, this year-long secondment will be critical as we look to expand and improve our companies and industries coverage for investors, with a strong emphasis on investable news, information and insights.
Amy brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the role. As Executive Editor, Professional News, she has built and overseen a team focused on legal-affairs journalism for Reuters and for customers of the non-financial industry businesses of Thomson Reuters. During this time, she has demonstrated her ability to understand and foresee customer needs, creating a new revenue stream that brings our legal expertise to a broader audience. While on secondment, Amy will maintain responsibility for the Reuters partnership with the Legal business, specifically the news provided to subscribers of the Westlaw Practitioner Insights product.
Before joining Thomson Reuters in 2010, Amy held top editing roles at Conde Nast Portfolio, on the NPR program “Planet Money,” and at The Wall Street Journal, where she helped drive and edit company news coverage for Page One. Amy holds a law degree (J.D.) and a Master’s degree in Journalism from the University of California, Berkeley, and a B.A. in English from Yale University. She was the 2016 winner of the Gerald Loeb Foundation’s Lawrence Minard Editor Award for business and financial journalism.
In her new role, which will be based in New York, Amy will be working closely with Company News Editors, regional editors, bureau chiefs and reporters around the world as, together, we identify and tackle areas of this crucial coverage in which we can improve. Amy will be getting in touch with many of you in the coming weeks. Please feel free to reach out to her or me with ideas and suggestions, or if you are interested in getting more involved in the project.
Do join me in congratulating Amy on her appointment.
