Report on Business reporters Boyd Erman and Tara Perkins are leaving The Globe and Mail on Nov. 7 to pursue careers outside of journalism.

Perkins will join the Canadian Pension Plan Investment Board and Erman tweeted he is joining Longview Communications, a Toronto PR firm.

Tara PerkinsPerkins is currently the real estate reporter at the Globe. According to a memo sent by ROB editor Paul Waldie, Perkins joined the newspaper’s business section in 2007 and has won a National Newspaper Award (NNA).

“Throughout her career in journalism, Tara has represented the essence of reporting, someone who will take any assignment and never, ever, quit until she has the story,” Waldie said in the memo. “Just ask Conrad Black who has been chased down, staked out and badgered on his private phone line by Tara.”

Boyd ErmanErman joined the Globe in 2006 and is currently a Streetwise columnist. He has won three NNAs. Prior to joining the Globe, he worked for Dow Jones, Bloomberg and the National Post.

“He too has been the heart and soul of the ROB, tirelessly working with other reporters to turn tips into front-page stories. And he always looks great on BNN,” Waldie added in the memo.
