Caroline Gage, Bloomberg senior executive editor of the Americas, sent the following announcement:
I’m thrilled to announce that Crayton Harrison will become Executive Editor for LatAm, based out of Mexico City.
Crayton brings a wealth of experience to his new role, including stints in four different bureaus since Bloomberg hired him in 2007 from the Dallas Morning News. After reporting on telecom from Texas, he moved to Mexico City in 2009 and covered Carlos Slim for four years. He then became a team leader, running Health from New York and Media & Telecom from Los Angeles.
Since 2018, Crayton has run our global business coverage in the Americas as managing editor. From that perch, he oversaw our Covid coverage in the region, launched a handful of digital verticals and drove reporting on everything from car shortages to the antics of Elon Musk. He holds degrees in Spanish and journalism from SMU and is looking forward to dusting off his Portuguese skills.
Crayton is a passionate storyteller and a terrific manager — and I’m delighted to be working closely with him again as we aim to elevate our coverage from the region. He’ll start his role from New York in January and move to Mexico City after the school year concludes. Please join me in congratulating Crayton on his well-deserved promotion!
