The bureau supplies the US, European and Asian editions, and the title’s

Financial Times journalist and editor of the Moscow Times, Marc

Champion, who covers British politics, and Jesse Eisinger from

TheStreet.com, who edits the Heard in Europe stock market column.



’The London bureau is already the largest outside the US, and it is

expected to grow even more in the years to come,’ said Hagerty.



Hagerty joins from the Journal’s Atlanta office, where he has been

deputy bureau chief since 1998. He was previously managing editor of the

Asian edition for four years. He joined the Wall Street Journal in 1978

on the New York copy desk, but spent four years at the International

Herald Tribune from 1982 as reporter and editor in Paris and London.
