NEW YORK: Wall Street Journal veteran Deborah Solomon has joined Finsbury as a principal.
Solomon stepped into the role on Monday and is based in Washington, DC and New York.
As Finsbury's principal, she will provide strategic counseling on policy and regulation, financial and crisis communication, transactions, and public affairs, Finsbury CEO Michael Gross told PRWeek via email.
Most recently, Solomon served as a news editor for The Wall Street Journal, overseeing financial regulatory and law enforcement coverage in Washington.
Prior to that, she spent roughly 15 years as a reporter at the publication, covering economic policy, the Securities and Exchange Commission, financial regulation, and a series on corporate scandals.
Solomon also served as an editor at Bloomberg between February 2012 and March 2013, according to her LinkedIn profile.
Earlier this month, Finsbury appointed Peter Land, most recently AOL’s communications chief, as a partner. He is working to help expand Finsbury’s global corporate communications offering.
Finsbury, which rebranded from RLM Finsbury in September 2014, has 12 offices across nine countries.
