The Logic editor in chief David Skok sent out the following:
Over the past 18 months, we have hired across the organization in marketing, sales, and especially in the newsroom, where we have more than doubled our reporting and editing teams. We have grown to a size where clear lines of communication, responsibilities, and accountability across the organization have become essential. As we know from reporting on scale-ups, there is a common inflection point for companies that reach our stage of maturity, when you can no longer rely on informal processes to build a strong and sustainable business. We are no different.
As a result, we are announcing a reorganization of the newsroom which will allow us to thrive in this next phase of our growth.
Effective immediately, April Fong will become Executive Editor. In this new role, reporting directly to me, April will help shape the editorial strategy of The Logic, overseeing all newsletter products, editorial franchises, live journalism and special projects.
This is a vital leadership position that will bring a consistent cadence to our reporting products and events, and will shape how readers experience our great journalism across platforms and with the wider public.
In the two years that I’ve had the pleasure of working with April she has proven to be a strong and disciplined leader with a kindness and professionalism that exemplifies all the very best qualities of The Logic.
I’m confident that April will excel in taking on these new responsibilities, making us all better in the process, and I’m tremendously excited to work more closely with her.
Please join me in congratulating April on her new appointment.
