Task is Experian's new EIC; Hays moves to Edelman; Ecker changes beats
Experian has a new editor-in-chief. Aaron Task, who had been editor-in-chief of Fortune.com until last November, will be building Experian’s personal finance coverage. Before Fortune, he was editor-in-chief at Yahoo Finance, and prior to that, spent ten years at TheStreet.com in a variety of roles, including executive editor.
Financial reporter Laurie Hays, a 30-year journalist with The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg, has joined PR firm Edelman as the executive vice president in its financial communications and capital markets unit. She makes the move from Brunswick, where she handled mergers and acquisitions, CEO transitions, activism defense and crisis situations.
And Danny Ecker is moving from the sports business beat to the commercial real estate beat at Crain’s Chicago Business. Before joining Crain’s in 2010, he was a producer for UWire.com.
