  • John Chalmers, editor, political and general news, Asia, takes on the new role of bureau chief South Asia, returning to New Delhi for the second time in his Reuters career.
  • Lincoln Feast, deputy editor for Asia company news and head of the company news desk in Singapore, becomes bureau chief Pacific, based in Sydney.

  • Eric Burroughs, Asia financial markets editor in Hong Kong, takes on a new project to deepen market coverage across asset classes. “Eric will recruit and run a team that will use expert editing, smart reporting and cool technology to create a new stream of content that will support our desktop business,” said Dayan Candappa, Asia managing editor. “He will launch the project in Asia and then oversee the rollout across the world, working with colleagues in EMEA and the Americas. This is a critical project, one of the first commitments the new leadership team has made to the business and one that will help blunt challenges from Dow Jones and Bloomberg in the real-time commentary and analysis space.”
