Reuters appoints David Greising to head Reuters Midwest bureau

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.
