Thiruvengadam leaving Business Insider
Meena Thiruvengadam, head of audience development at Business Insider, is leaving the website for another opportunity.
She’s the second top editorial employee to leave in the past two weeks. Matt Rosoff, Business Insider executive editor and global tech editor, left for a position at CNBC’s digital operations.
In her current position, she oversees audience development and social media strategy for Business Insider, Tech Insider and Insider. She has been there for a little bit more than a year.
Thiruvengadam has worked in a variety of roles for legacy media brands and digital startups, including as an editor for Yahoo Finance from May 2014 to November 2015 and as a reporter writing for Dow Jones Newswires and the Wall Street Journal from May 2008 to January 2011.
Before that, she spent four years as a business reporter for the San Antonio Express-News.
She has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas-San Antonio and a master’s degree from Northwestern University.
