Wall Street Journal technology editor Jonathan Krim sent out the following staff promotion on Monday:
I am excited to announce that Scott Thurm has been named Senior Deputy Technology Editor.
Scott will play a crucial role as we build out our global technology expansion and post-AllThingsD initiative. He brings a powerful combination of keen analytical thinking, expertise with data and company forensics, and experience covering Silicon Valley to the task. He is also a natural-born editor and creative leader.
Scott’s been a Senior Editor since 2010, and was part of the team that produced the Journal’s What They Know project on digital privacy. Previously, he was chief of the Journal’s Management bureau, supervising a bi-coastal group of reporters in New York and San Francisco.
Scott joined the Journal in 1998 as a reporter in the San Francisco bureau, and later was deputy chief of the bureau. He previously worked at the San Jose Mercury News and the Courier-Journal in Louisville, Ky., where he was part of a team of reporters that won the 1989 Pulitzer Prize for general news reporting.
Scott will start his new role Oct. 7, and you can follow him @ScottThurm. Please join me in congratulating him.
