IBT Media Names Enterprise Editor

John Simons moves up.

IBT Media has named John Simons enterprise editor, a new role at the company. Simons most recently served as IBT’s business editor.

“John is at once a terrific shaper of stories, a deft line editor, and an all-around excellent colleague,” said IBT’s global editor in chief, Peter Goodman. “He has conceived of and guided some of our more memorable work and we are thrilled to see what comes of this significant step forward in our evolution.”

Succeeding Simons as IBT’s business editor is Roland Jones. Jones comes to the company from Fortune, where he served as senior editor for news.

Both Simons and Jones will report to Goodman.
