The Wall Street Journal Europe has a new editor for one of its most popular sections - and has promised to recruit ten more reporters and editors during 2001.
Caleb Solomon replaces Beverley Larson, who is returning to New York as technology editor, on the Brussels-based paper's Networking pages on 1 February.
WSJE editor Fred Kempe said: 'Solomon will certainly be ushering in some changes this year. The section will of course focus on all the problems of dot.coms in the new economy, and it will expand in the area of management and biotechnology.'
Launched in February 2000 as part of a redesign, Networking currently runs at eight to 12 pages daily. Subscribers in particular have been attracted by it, Kempe said.
Meanwhile David Reilly, former assistant managing editor of TheStreet.com, has been made deputy editor of the WSJE's Money & Investing section.
