Scott Wenger, formerly group editorial director at Arizent, has been hired as editorial director of Barron’s Advisor.

Wenger had left Arizent in April. Right before he left, Arizent publication Financial Planning won two SABEW Best in Business Awards: for General Excellence in its category, SABEW’s top prize, and Best Banking/Finance coverage in its category for a multimedia investigative project.

As group editorial director at Arizent, Wenger managed 50 staff and freelance at six brands covering financial advice, employee benefits and workplace issues, and asset management. He came to SourceMedia from the New York Daily News, where he concluded a 13-year run as managing editor for money and business.

While there, Wenger launched a small business conference series and a weekly personal finance news magazine, authored an award-winning series on the impact of China’s booming economy on New Yorkers, and was a weekly guest on a New York radio show for nearly a decade.

Previous jobs included a five-year stint as a business news producer at CNN and CNBC, and as a health care equities analyst at Alex. Brown & Sons.
