Bloomberg Businessweek has a new editor for its closing section at the back of the magazine.
Emma Rosenblum, an editor at Glamour, will oversee the section, called "Etc.," which blends eccentric features about business trends and the super rich with listy charticles tailored to the finance set.
She replaces Julian Sancton, who has left Businessweek just one year after replacing Etc.'s inaugural editor, Jon Kelly, who now works for The New York Times Magazine.
Prior to Glamour, where she worked as an articles editor and senior editor, Rosenblum spent six years at New York magazine, climbing the ladder from editorial assistant to associate editor.
She now inherits what has become one of Businessweek's more popular components since the magazine's sweeping 2010 overhaul; with its lighter, off-beat fare, Etc. has that same sort of Sunday Styles appeal that gets readers talking and freelancers clamoring to write for it. (Disclosure: I contributed various features to the section in 2010 and 2011.)
"Emma's got a sharp wit and unique aesthetic," Businessweek editor Josh Tyrangiel told Capital in a statement relayed by a spokesperson. "We've admired her writing for a long time and are thrilled to have her aboard."
