Asia Editor Changes at Bloomberg

Bloomberg News has made a number of editorial changes on the East Asia team, starting with upping managing editors John Liu and Brian Bremner to executive editor roles for Greater China and Asia enterprise, respectively. Liu has been at Bloomberg since 2006, starting in the Shanghai bureau as a tech reporter before becoming the bureau chief in 2009 and moving to the Beijing bureau in 2010 to become the bureau chief, and later named managing editor of Greater China in 2014. Bremner has been with Bloomberg for twenty years, starting at Bloomberg Businessweek in 1995 where he was the Asia economics editor in Tokyo for 10 years, eventually becoming the assistant managing editor of the publication, before moving to Bloomberg News in 2014 as the managing editor of Asia enterprise.

A bit further south, Linus Chua has been named the managing editor of Southeast Asia, having most recently been the Singapore bureau chief. Chua was tapped as bureau chief in 2012, after spending 15 years as a reporter and editor at the Singapore bureau. Replacing him as bureau chief is Stephanie Phang, who was previously the economy team leader at the bureau. She has been in that role since 2011, when she was promoted after 2 years as economy editor. She joined Bloomberg News in 2002 a reporter.

Bloomberg has also promoted Ed Johnson to managing editor of Australia and New Zealand. Johnson has been the Sydney bureau chief since 2011, and has been at Bloomberg News since 2006, originally as a world affairs reporter in Sydney before being promoted to corporate finance editor in 2010. Johnson was also an Associated Press political correspondent in London for five years before joining Bloomberg. Follow Bloomberg News on Twitter and Facebook for the first word in business news.
