They will work with incoming global managing editor, newsroom Simon Robinson “to make sure we attract and retain the best and most diverse possible talent across the globe,” a memo to editorial staff said.
They report to Alessandra Galloni, global managing editor, news planning and creation, as do regional news editors Dan Flynn, Kevin Krolicki, Samia Nakhoul, Alexandra Zavis, Leela de Kretser and Amy Stevens. ■
