Incoming IBJ Editor Greg Andrews announced the appointment of Cory Schouten as managing editor.
Schouten, 31, joined IBJ as a reporter in 2006 after stints at the Sarasota Herald-Tribune and the Arizona Republic. The Indianapolis native and Indiana University graduate currently covers the real estate beat, writes the Property Lines real estate blog, and appears on business news updates for Fox59, IBJ’s news-gathering partner.
Schouten also serves as a member of the board of governors of the Society of American Business Editors and Writers, treasurer of the Indianapolis Press Club Foundation, and adjunct lecturer at the School of Journalism at IUPUI.
Andrews, the newspaper’s managing editor since 2005, will succeed Editor Tom Harton this month. Harton plans to step down after 22 years on the job.•
