Chris Peacock is an independent journalist specializing in digital media, business and technology. He was most recently executive editor and vice president of CNNMoney, Time Warner’s leading business and finance destination.

Peacock ran CNNMoney’s award-winning web site from 2004 to 2014. During that time he expanded coverage to include technology, investing and economics. Peacock spearheaded digital business video, established bureaus in London and Hong Kong and launched dozens of financial products and services. By 2013, he also led CNN’s TV business coverage. Under his leadership, CNNMoney became one of Time Warner’s most profitable digital businesses.

Before CNNMoney, Peacock worked twice at FORTUNE. He was the web site’s first editor in 1997 and rejoined in 2001 as executive editor. In the interim, he was managing editor of Inside.com, a startup that forever changed media business coverage.

A digital media veteran, Peacock’s love for journalism began analog, as a 10-year-old expat delivering newspapers in London for 50 pence a week.  He currently serves on the boards of the Society of American Business Editors and Writers and the Knight-Bagehot Fellowship.

Peacock holds a B.S. in Journalism and Political Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He lives in New York City and Callicoon, N.Y., with his wife, industrial designer Melissa Easton.
