Bloomberg Businessweek announced Thursday that Janet Paskin has been named assistant managing editor of the magazine and editor of Businessweek.com.

Paskin will report to Josh Tyrangiel, editorial director of Bloomberg Digital and editor of Bloomberg Businessweek, beginning Nov. 12.

“Janet is a talented digital editor who has a great understanding for how to grow strong online and mobile platforms,” said Tyrangiel in a statement. “Coupled with her background as a financial reporter, she’s the ideal person to lead Businessweek.com and add to the skills of the Bloomberg Businessweek team. We’re thrilled to have her join us.”

Paskin joins Bloomberg Businessweek from the Wall Street Journal, where she served as digital editor, overseeing the online and mobile presence for its Money & Investing bureau, including WSJ.com’s Markets Pulse Web app. Prior to the Wall Street Journal, Paskin was with SmartMoney, first as a senior writer for the magazine from 2006 to 2009, and then as managing editor of SmartMoney.com from 2010 to 2012.

In 2011 she led the site’s redesign and increased traffic to SmartMoney articles by 40 percent. In between her SmartMoney posts, she was managing editor at Bundle.com, joining the personal finance startup six months prior to launch to develop and implement its editorial strategy. Paskin was also a reporter at Money magazine from 2005 to 2006.

In March, Talking Biz News reported about her Journal job.
