Reuters Global Managing Editor Tiffany Wu shared the following message with Reuters staff about Veronica Brown’s appointment as global mining and metals editor.
I am very happy to announce that Veronica Brown will become Global Industry Editor for Mining and Metals, leading our coverage of companies ranging from Glencore to Rio Tinto.
Veronica brings a wealth of experience to this important beat, having managed the EMEA commodities and energy team for more than a decade. Her appointment to this newly expanded global industry editor role will allow us to foster and deepen the collaboration between our corporate mining reporters and metals market reporters.
Veronica joined Reuters in 2001, working initially as a sub-editor on the commodities desk. She quickly shifted to the reporting side as UK agricultural markets correspondent before expanding her remit to cover other commodities including soft, precious and base metals. Veronica moved to the markets team in 2005 to report on foreign exchange and government bonds. She was part of the award-winning team that covered the 2008 global financial crisis.
Veronica returned to commodities and energy in 2009 as EMEA commodities editor and then became EMEA commodities and energy editor in 2010, supervising crude oil supply, corporate energy, gas and power, metals and agriculture reporting. She recently won the 2022 Reuters Editor of the Year award for managing our agenda-setting coverage of Europe’s energy crisis.
Based in London, Veronica begins the new role on May 9 and reports to me.
