Former Chicago Tribune business columnist David Greising will become the new Midwest Bureau Chief at Reuters, starting March 1, the newswire announced Friday.
Greising has worked most recently as a consultant and special advisor to the board of World Business Chicago, a public-private partnership that recruits companies to invest in Chicago.
At Reuters, Greising replaces Peter Bohan, who will focus full-time on the newswire’s Americas Service, a general news file sent to clients in the United States.
Greising, a Chicago native and graduate of Indiana’s DePauw University, spent 11 years at the Tribune where he broke stories on the United Airlines bankruptcy, a scandal at Florsheim that cost the CEO his job, scandalous losses at Motorola and a series on problems in developing a global supply chain for Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner.
After the Tribune, Greising worked as managing editor and general manager of the Chicago News Cooperative, leading a news team that produced a Chicago section for The New York Times.
