Narrative Strategies has recruited Jesse Westbrook, an 18-year veteran of Bloomberg, for the managing director slot.

At Bloomberg, Westbrook rose to the managing editor of US financial coverage role, after serving as a member of Bloomberg’s financial services regulation team in DC, and editor of the financial enforcement group in London.

Westbrook led coverage of the European hedge sector, and reported on the Securities and Exchange Commission and the US insurance business.

After Bloomberg, he co-founded Capitol Account newsletter that covered financial regulations for policy influencers, elected officials, regulators and investment industry professionals.

Narrative Strategies CEO Ken Spain said Westbrook “understands the financial world inside and out” and will provide unparalleled insight and experience to Narrative Strategies as it expands in the financial services sector.

Clarion Capital Partners, a New York private equity firm, took a stake in Narrative Strategies last month.
