John Pickering, a business journalist with stints at both Reuters and Bloomberg News, has joined as a senior editor.

It’s the first major editorial hire since CEO David Callaway and editor in chief Tara Murphy took over earlier this summer.

Pickering has been with Reuters as a top news editor for the past two years.

Before that, Pickering spent 21 years at Bloomberg, including five years in its U.S. legal team as a senior editor and as bankruptcy team leader. Among the stories Pickering has overseen include key parts of Bloomberg’s coverage of the financial crisis, including the  Lehman and General Motors’ bankruptcies, and the AIG rescue.

Other positions he previously held include  features editor for Bloomberg’s bond team, deputy team leader for the finance team, and New York-based Latin American team leader.  He also spent five years with Bloomberg in London.

Pickering has a B.A. from Columbia University and started his career at Accounting Today.
