Crowley will oversee the UK edition of IBT Media’s flagship title as of 29 March and will be based at IBT Media’s office in London.
Most recently, Crowley served as digital editor EMEA at The Wall Street Journal where he managed the output across the title. He will report directly to co-founder and managing director of IBT Media for EMEA, Dev Pragad.
“John is a world-class editor who thrives on the dynamism of the ever-changing modern media landscape,” said Pragad. “He’s a terrific shaper of stories, a great communicator and a pioneer of digital innovation. His hire represents a significant step forward in our evolution and we are thrilled to have him join us.”
“I am thrilled to be joining International Business
Times at an exciting point in its development as a global business news
organisation. Like any editor, I want us to break more exclusives and get refreshing
new angles on stories, but as the media landscape changes before our eyes, I
also want to explore innovation and new ways to tell stories,” said Crowley.
In recent weeks, IBT Media has made new hires to strengthen its
corporate management team and hired Justin Evans, as director of strategy, and Greg Witham as its first chief operating officer for EMEA.
