Reuters Names Kevin Krolicki Washington Bureau Chief

From Tokyo to DC.

Reuters has named Kevin Krolicki as its Washington bureau chief. Krolicki was most recently Reuters’ Tokyo bureau chief, a role he had held for the past three years.

Krolicki has been with the company since 1996. He has previously served as Reuters’ West Coast equities editor-in-chief, West Coast bureau chief and Detroit bureau chief.

“There could hardly be a more fascinating time to take the helm of our Washington bureau,” wrote Reuters Americas editor, Dayan Candappa, in a memo. “Candidates are poised to announce runs for the White House and the Fed may be poised to raise interest rates. Foreign policy has rarely been more complex and hotly contested.”
