Laura Zelenko

Senior Executive Editor for Diversity, Talent, Standards and Training Bloomberg News

Laura Zelenko, who has spent more than two decades overseeing coverage across the globe for Bloomberg News, has taken on a new role as senior executive editor for the company's editorial initiatives focused on diversity, training, talent and news standards.

Ms. Zelenko joined Bloomberg in 1993 in Prague after stints at United Press International in West Virginia and the Charlotte Observer in North Carolina. She opened Bloomberg's first bureaus across Eastern Europe and won the company's first Overseas Press Club award for her work on a series on global prime bank securities fraud. In 1998, she moved to Moscow to cover the nation's debt default and co-lead the team of reporters and editors in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. Ms. Zelenko returned to the U.S. in 2001 and took over responsibility for all Latin American coverage. After five years traveling back and forth to the region, she established Bloomberg's first emerging markets team, ran coverage of global equity, currency, commodities and bond markets and then took on responsibility for all business, finance and investigative coverage globally, overseeing more than 600 journalists.

Ms. Zelenko, who holds a bachelor's degree in politics from Princeton University, is based in New York and has two college-aged children, Sasha and Katya.
