Amir Mizroch, the Israeli journalist and former Executive Editor of The Jerusalem Post, has left the Wall Street Journal after two years of editing the technology section for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
The Wall Street Journal announced that he would be joining as tech editor for EMEA back in January 2014, so fittingly Amir has confirmed his departure to us almost two years later to the day. Prior to his career move (and physical move to London), he worked as editor of the English Edition of Israel Hayom.
Interestingly, Mizroch's next step in his career will not be in an editorial or journalist role. In fact, he will be joining London-based Milltown Partners to 'work with big technology firms' on the 1st of February.
The communications consultancy firm was started by Paddy Harverson, former comms secretary at Clarence House, and D-J Collins, former VP of public policy and comms for Google EMEA, at the end of 2012. Milltown Partners also recently hired Tesco's head of media, Ruth McAllister, and Uber senior comms lead EMEA (and also ex-Googler) Ben Novick.
Milltown Partners' website currently doesn't list any of its clients.
We're losing to PR one of the intellectual highlights of @WSJ's tech coverage, @Amirmizroch. His greatest hit: https://t.co/2VB3c3qDTl— @mims Tue Jan 12 11:06:02 +0000 2016
