The Financial Times has appointed Dan Bogler president and editor of the newly-acquired Medley Global Advisors (MGA), a premier provider of macro policy intelligence to the world’s top investment banks, hedge funds and asset managers.
Dan Bogler joined the FT in 1995 as a Lex columnist based in London and then New York. He also worked as Asia news editor, financial editor for FT Deutschland and was head of the Lex column before becoming managing editor in 2005. He was previously a speechwriter for the president and COO of Goldman Sachs in New York.
John Ridding, FT chief executive, commented: “Dan has done an excellent job as the FT’s managing editor and played a key role in the establishment of the new integrated newsroom at the FT. With his editorial and editorial management experience, and his postings in Hong Kong, New York and London, Dan is ideally placed to drive MGA’s growth and its international expansion outside the US.”
Bogler will report to FT CFO and COO Scott Henderson, with an editorial reporting line into Lionel Barber, FT editor. Joanna Rollo, previously deputy managing editor of the FT, will become acting managing editor.
The appointment follows the recent FT acquisition of Medley Global Advisors, a company that provides in-depth research and analysis to help clients understand and anticipate the major policy events driving interest rate, currency and energy markets.
