TALKING BIZ NEWS EXCLUSIVE
Ken Brown, the editor of The Wall Street Journal‘s Money & Investing section, is headed to Asia in June to build up money and investing coverage at the Asian Wall Street Journal, sources at the paper tell Talking Biz News.
Brown became the Money & Investing editor in 2008, replacing Nik Deogun, who became the international editor. Deogun is now the managing editor at CNBC.
Brown has been deputy for the group since April 2007. Previously, he worked at Pzena Investment Management, where he was a principal and did client services, research and communications for their global and international strategies.
Prior to Pzena, Brown was the bureau chief for the real estate section of The Journal. He first joined Dow Jones in March 1997 as a senior editor at SmartMoney Magazine, and moved to the Journal in January 2000 as reporter covering mutual funds. From 2001 to the end of 2003, he wrote the Journal’s “Heard on the Street” column. In 2004, he served as the deputy technology editor for the Journal.
Interestingly, a former Money & Investing editor, Dave Kansas, recently returned to the Journal’s New York offices after a stint in London.
