TechCrunch announced some exciting changes to their editorial team today including the addition of two new hires. Ingrid Lunden, formerly of PaidContent, has joined the team as a TechCrunch writer covering mobile, digital media and breaking tech news. Based in London, Lunden will also cover European startups and tech companies with TC Europe editor Mike Butcher. The second hire is Colleen Taylor, who joins the team from GigaOm. Taylor will help expand TechCrunch's video coverage as a TV reporter, and become the familiar face of TCTV.
As the team continues to expand, TechCrunch also announced that Alexia Tsotsis and Eric Eldon will become senior editors leading coverage of Silicon Valley from the San Francisco headquarters. Veteran writer Leena Rao will also become a senior editor, focusing on covering social commerce, venture capital, and the enterprise more deeply. Matt Burns will lead as the new mobile editor.
