Mary Ann Azevedo has been named the Managing Editor of FinLedger, HW Media’s newly launched fintech media brand. Working with HW Media CEO Clayton Collins, Azevedo will direct news and content strategy of FinLedger and build a team of fintech journalists to support FinLedger’s audience of financial services professionals.

“Mary Ann is a talented journalist and strategic leader, and it comes as no surprise that she’s also a magnet for attracting other talented journalists and writers,” said Collins. “Launching a new media brand is an incredible feat, and this type of entrepreneurial venture takes energy, creativity and tenacity. I couldn’t be more excited to partner with Mary Ann on the launch of FinLedger and the exciting path ahead.” 

Azevedo joined HW Media from Crunchbase News where she covered startups and venture funding trends with a special focus on real estate tech, construction tech and under-the-radar regions.
