Claire McNeill - Enterprise Editor

Enterprise Editor

As the Times’ enterprise editor, I work with a talented team of writers and the broader newsroom to produce signature narrative and explanatory journalism. I also co-lead the Times’ internship program. Before becoming an editor in 2022, I spent seven years as a reporter covering general assignment news, higher education and enterprise features. My goal, then and now, is to bring complex ideas to life through artful stories, ones that tell you something new about our community and the people in it. I’m a South Jersey native, big-time reader and former bookseller. Creature comforts include Muji pens and good sentences. If there’s a story you want us to know about, just send me a note.
