New Bloomberg BusinessWeek Staff Is Coming Together

Bloomberg BusinessWeek magazine coverBUSINESSWEEK this week revealed more of its “new” masthead under the owner, Bloomberg LP.

The two most senior executives are leaving: President Keith Fox, who said he will stay with former owner McGraw-Hill, and Editor-in-Chief Steve Adler with destination unknown.  Also leaving is Roger Neal, who oversaw the company’s not-so-successful business social net working site, which attracted only a half-million users despite millions of dollars spent.

But executive editors Ellen Pollock and John Byrne, and managing editor Ciro Scotti will all be staying.  On the business side, Publisher Jessica Sibley, marketing and communications director Carl Fisher and vice president of finance Tania Secor will also stay.  As for the rest of the personnel, “Bloomberg expects to maintain a majority of BW employees,” Norm Pearlstine, chief content officer of Bloomberg and soon chairman of BusinessWeek, said in a memo.  He expects to let BW staffers know whether they will be offered new jobs by November 20.

“We expect to move all BusinessWeek offices and bureaus globally (except New York and Austin, Texas) to existing Bloomberg offices on December 4.  Employees based in New York will continue to work at 1221 Avenue of the Americas until space is available at Bloomberg’s 731 Lexington Avenue building,” Pearlstine’s memo continued.
