Courtnay Kim, the assistant managing editor for business news at the Minneapolis Star Tribune, is leaving the organization after 25 years.

Her last day is July 1.

She was the first woman of color with that role at the role. With 17 reporters and editors, the department is one of the largest business-news operations at a newspaper in the country.

“I cannot thank my team enough,” she wrote on LinkedIn. “I know they will continue to create evocative and compelling work, fulfilling the mission we, as journalists, carry. It has been such an honor and a privilege to work with each one of these thoughtful, compassionate and brilliant humans for as long as I did.”

Kim previously was national editor, senior wire editor, copy editor and multi-platform editor at the Star Tribune. She also worked at Newsday and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

She is a graduate of the University of Minnesota.
