Report on Business editor Derek DeCloet is leaving The Globe and Mail to become director of content strategy at Rogers Publishing.

DeCloet will leave the newspaper on March 14, the Globe’s editor-in-chief John Stackhouse said in a memo. At Rogers, he will lead the editorial operations of the company’s consumer magazines, such as Maclean's, Canadian Business, Chatelaine, MoneySense and Sportsnet Magazine.

 “Rogers’ gain is very much the Globe’s loss,” Stackhouse said. “It’s an enormous opportunity and exciting challenge as Derek will lead a group of 300 journalists and be charged with setting a new digital direction for them and their magazines.”

Rogers Media declined to provide comment to J-Source.

According to the Globe memo, DeCloet joined the newspaper in 2003 as a business reporter and later became the Vox columnist that year. He was appointed managing editor of the section in 2009 and ROB editor in 2012.

Deputy editor Mark Heinzl will take over the business section in the interim as a formal search is launched for the next ROB editor, Stackhouse added.
