Schneider made the move to Bloomberg from American Banker, where has worked since December as a senior editor managing the Washington D.C. bureau’s community and regional banking team. She also handled the publication’s recruiting efforts.
In her new role at Bloomberg, Schneider will lead a team of three reporters based in the nation’s capital. Her team will produce content for Bloomberg BusinessWeek and the company’s latest online new venture, “Bloomberg Government.”
With a beat like tax policy, Schneider’s plate will be full, but she’s excited to dive into a topic that’s center stage. Bush-era tax breaks nearing expiration and the lingering debate over balancing middle and upper class tax cuts amidst a growing deficit are at the top of her coverage list.
“Bloomberg is really adding people and new coverage areas and expanding their lens, so it’s a great time to be jumping aboard,” Schneider said.
Schneider’s latest move to Bloomberg continues her long career in financial journalism. Before joining American Banker, she was the deputy editor for economics and finance at Congressional Quarterly and an assistant managing editor at U.S. News and World Report. She also worked as a local business editor at The Washington Post for five years.
