Ed Greenspon has joined Bloomberg News as its Canadian editor-at-large.

Greenspon will be leading a team that will work on expanding the international news agency’s investigative and explanatory journalism in Canada.

The former Globe and Mail editor-in-chief, who was most recently vice-president of business development at the Toronto Star, says he’s excited to help create great journalism.

“We want to make a big mark,” Greenspon said in an interview from New York.

“We already have a great team of about 30 journalists and now we want to do more complex journalism that will have more impact.”

He says Bloomberg is a good place for that because the company has the staff and resources to invest in the type of journalism that stretches many other organizations too thin.

Bloomberg has been aggressively expanding in Canada, growing its news staff by 50% in the last two years, primarily in Toronto. The company also expanded its office in Calgary and added a correspondent in Winnipeg.

“We welcome Ed to Bloomberg News with excitement, knowing that his knowledge and experience will elevate our coverage of this important country,” Laurie Hays, senior executive editor, said in a statement.

Greenspon will work out of the Toronto office, and report to executive editor Jonathan Kaufman in New York.

Greenspon has also worked as the Prairie bureau chief for the Financial Post, managing editor of Report on Business and as The Globe‘s Ottawa bureau chief.
