WSJ reporter in Brussels is leaving for EU job
Vanessa Mock, a reporter for The Wall Street Journal in its Brussels bureau, has resigned from the paper.
In an email to her colleagues, Mock wrote:
Today marks the end of a very stimulating time at the WSJ’s Brussels bureau, chasing antitrust and merger stories and covering the energy beat at a time of high-drama with Russia. There were also forays into the glittering world of the Eurovision song contest, insect-eating in Belgium and Dutch politics (much more exciting than it sounds).
It’s been a pleasure working with so many talented colleagues in London, New York, Moscow and everywhere else in between. Particular thanks to the Brussels crew for being ace.
Mock she joined the newspaper in April 2012. She has covered European Union energy and climate policies. She speaks French, German, Dutch, Spanish and fairly solid Italian. She previously worked for the Financial Times, Radio Netherlands and Swiss Radio International.
On Dec. 1, Mock will become European Commission spokesperson for financial services and tax issues.
