Toronto, March 9, 2012—Dianne de Fenoyl, Editorial Director, Rogers Publishing Limited, today announced the appointment of Jonathan Chevreau to the role of Editor at MoneySense magazine. His appointment is effective April 9.
In his new role, Chevreau will be responsible for leading the MoneySense content team and broadening the vision of the magazine through enhanced brand awareness and integration across multiple products and platforms. He will also help further grow newsstand and subscription sales, while building on the many successes MoneySense has enjoyed recently, including being named Magazine of the Year in 2011 by the National Magazine Awards.
“Jonathan is a veteran personal finance communicator who has a proven talent for engaging readers, and we are thrilled he is joining MoneySense,” says de Fenoyl.
One of Canada’s most trusted voices in financial commentary, Chevreau brings with him a wealth of experience in journalism and personal finance. Most recently, he was the senior personal finance columnist for the National Post, a role he held since 1996 (then the Financial Post) and one for which he has won several awards.
“I look forward to harnessing MoneySense’s current momentum by helping solidify and grow the magazine’s tremendous base of readers,” says Chevreau. “On a personal level, I’m looking forward to the kinds of challenges working in this new format will offer me—particularly because the team at MoneySense is already doing such a terrific job injecting fun, credibility, information and advice into every page.”
Chevreau has authored or coauthored eight financial books, including The Wealthy Boomer, Smart Funds and a financial novel, Findependence Day: How to achieve financial independence while you’re still young enough to enjoy it. An avid blogger and tweeter, Chevreau’s Wealthy Boomer blog is one of the top sources of financial commentary in the country.
