LatinFinance issued the following announcement on Sept. 27.
LatinFinance, the leading global source of intelligence on the financial markets and economies of Latin America and the Caribbean, has appointed veteran award-winning journalist Daniel Bases as its managing editor, a major step for the company as it builds on its already preeminent market news and intelligence service.
Bases joins LatinFinance after a distinguished 22-year career at Reuters News, where he was an editor and foreign correspondent. The majority of his tenure was spent editing and reporting on the emerging economies of Latin America, Eastern Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia. His more than decade-long coverage of Argentina's sovereign debt default led to multiple exclusives and awards.
"It is a thrilling time to be back focused on this region. LatinFinance offers a powerful platform to build up the coverage of these nations and hold leaders to account. The publication is poised for growth, innovation and most importantly breaking news that matters to top decision-makers and investors. We will continue to provide the essential news and analysis for formulating government policy and investment decisions," Bases said.
Drawing on over 30 years of editorial excellence, LatinFinance's English-language publications deliver high-value information to an international readership of companies, governments, financiers and investors, while its events convene those communities for high-level networking forums focused on the dynamics of those markets, by geography and sector.
"Dan's wide-ranging editorial management and reporting experience, deep knowledge of the markets, and critically, his global perspective, is what we were looking for to help not only maintain but grow our publishing platform," said LatinFinance CEO Taimur Ahmad.
"He brings to the table the proven tools to build and innovate. This is really an exciting time for LatinFinance and with Dan's editorial leadership, our position in the market will only get stronger," Ahmad said.
Bases will oversee all editorial operations and also moderate and chair discussions at LatinFinance's conferences worldwide. He will report directly to the CEO.
