Bloomberg News has named Ruth David as its London bureau chief, reports Bron Maher of Press Gazette.

Maher writes, “In her new role, which she started last week, David oversees some 500 journalists in many different niches based in the City of London – making Bloomberg one of the biggest newsrooms in the UK.

“David told Press Gazette her challenge would be ‘getting everyone to work together. We’re a very big organisation – how do you work together seamlessly?’

“Referring to the editors of teams covering, for example, companies, tech, eco-stuff or markets, she said: ‘Because there are so many cooks in the kitchen. We have a lot of really smart, really talented people. And so how do we ensure that from the first headline – where we want to be first, of course – to the very last analysis of note, we are the organisation that’s at the forefront.’”
