Memo: Paul Waldie named new editor of The Globe’s Report on Business section
Paul Waldie, the European bureau chief for The Globe and Mail, is returning to Toronto as the editor of the Report on Business section.
Sent on behalf of David Walmsley
I am delighted to announce Paul Waldie as the Editor of Report on Business. Paul is a familiar face to many of you, a veteran reporter and a consummate professional in all facets of the business of journalism, from television to print to digital. Paul has most recently of course been working as European Bureau Chief for The Globe and Mail based in England. His most recent work during that period includes braving the violence of Ukraine and, as an example of his breadth of experience, he became an extreme sport expert at the Sochi Olympic Games. Paul began his career as an earnings reporter for the Financial Post, had a stint as national editor at the National Post before moving to The Globe where he covered the biggest stories from Bre-X to Conrad Black’s tribulations. He spent a year in Winnipeg covering the Jets and he was heavily involved in covering the financial crisis of recent years. He is the proud recipient of three National Newspaper Awards for business reporting and a National Magazine Award for business coverage. He wrote a widely-praised best-selling business book on the McCain family.
Please join me in welcoming Paul to his new position. He starts tomorrow (Wed) and will host an RoB-wide town hall at noon.
