by Chris Roush
Wall Street Journal deputy managing editor Matt Murray and Gren Manuel, senior editor for Dow Jones Newswires, sent out the following staff announcement on Monday:
John is a superb journalist with news embedded in his DNA, and he’ll take charge of our team of about a dozen journalists in Stockholm, Oslo, Copenhagen and Helsinki, filing for the wire, WSJ.com, and the paper.
John spent five years with Dow Jones in Detroit, first with our news wire and then the Wall Street Journal where he did a sizzling, award-winning stint covering the US auto industry while it was in deep turmoil . His scoops include being the first to report that GM had changed its mind about a possible bankruptcy and the first exclusive on a Fiat/Chrysler partnership.
John subsequently became manager of corporate and financial communications at Ford and then moved to Reuters as U.S. Editor-in-Charge of Manufacturing.
He started back with us this earlier this month but will take a little while to move over to Sweden. Meantime our team in the region will be managed on-site by Nordic news editor Anna Molin who has done a superb job of keeping the operation steaming ahead over the last several months.
