The Wall Street Journal has named Margaret de Streel international editions editor, a new role at the paper. De Streel has been with the Journal for more than two decades; most recently serving as world news editor on the paper’s real-time desk.
De Streel will be based in New York and oversee a team of editors working on the Journal’s new global editions, which are replacing its current Europe and Asia editions. The new editions will make their debut September 14.
In a memo to staffers, Journal editor Gerard Baker said of de Streel, “Those who have worked with her or have been edited by her during her two-decade career here know she embodies the Journal’s highest standards.”
