NY Times Names Asia Business Editor

Carlos Tejada joins from the Journal.

The New York Times has named Carlos Tejada its Asia business editor.

Tejada most recently worked for The Wall Street Journal as its China news editor.

“Carlos is well known and admired among our Asia crew,” wrote Times business editor Dean Murphy, in a memo. “He was Paul Mozur’s editor when Paul was based in Beijing. Paul describes Carlos as ‘the heart of the WSJ bureau’ and ‘a tireless editor who has the rare capacity to remain jolly despite spearheading a complete rewrite of a feature at midnight.'”
