Peter Lattman, deputy business editor for The New York Times, is leaving the paper to join Emerson Collective as its managing director of media.
Emerson Collective is a philanthropic company that was founded by Steve Jobs’ widow, Laurene Powell Jobs.
Lattman had been with the Times since 2010. He was named deputy business editor in 2014. Lattman previously worked for The Wall Street Journal.
In a memo to staffers, Times business editor Dean Murphy lauded Lattman’s many skills.
“He has been a driver of stories, helpful with sources, a mentor to young reporters, and a consummate team player. As a reporter, he was both productive (typically 200+ bylines a year) and tenacious (SAC Capital and Steven A. Cohen, for starters). As an editor, he has insisted on keeping our competitive juices flowing, has spotted compelling stories and has upped our game day after day. He has also been a great colleague, ever upbeat and eager to offer a hand.”
