Washington Post biz reporter Merle switches to features
Washington Post executive features editor Liz Seymour, features deputy editor David Malitz, features deputy editor Mitch Rubin and senior editor for style Hank Stuever sent out the following announcement::
During four years in New York covering Wall Street, Renae wrote about short sellers wishing the worst for Tesla, the financial industry’s cozy relationship with the Trump administration and how payday lenders schemed to use Black churches to shield them from criticism. She’s written more stories than she can remember chronicling Wells Fargo’s struggle to stay on the right side of regulators after opening millions of fake accounts customers didn’t want and mistakenly foreclosing on hundreds of people. At the beginning of the pandemic, Renae turned her attention to the fate of unemployed workers struggling to pay rent and navigating a complicated eviction system even some judges struggle to understand.
