Bloomberg Businessweek Adds Two Editors, Writer To Staff

The editor in chief announced the additions in a memo to staff on Monday.

Bloomberg Businessweek is ringing in the new year with three new staff members. 

In a memo to staff on Monday, Editor-in-Chief Ellen Pollock said editors Pat Regnier and Bret Begun and writer Max Chafkin will all begin working for the magazine in January.

The announcement comes after a senior-level shake up at the magazine last year, when Josh Tyrangiel, then editor-in-chief, resigned to "consider new opportunities." Pollock replaced Tyrangiel after his departure.

Regnier, who previously served as the assistant managing editor of Money, began working at Bloomberg Businessweek today and will lead its markets and finance section.

Eric Gelman, who previously served as editor of the section, will become the deputy editor of the magazine's news section. He will work under deputy managing editor Howard Chua-Eoan, Pollock wrote in the memo.

Bret Begun will join the magazine on Jan. 11 as the editor for its Etc. section, which the publication says is "about the workplace -- and life away from it." Begun will join the publication following a stint as a senior editor for Details magazine, which will halt production following the publication of its December 2015/January 2016 issue.

Max Chafkin will also join the magazine on Jan. 19 as a staff technology writer. Chafkin has reported on companies like Uber and tech moguls like Mark Zuckerberg for Vanity Fair, Fast Company and others since 2012.
