Financial Times Announces Senior Editorial Appointments

Tracy Corrigan appointed Editor of FT.com

Ed Carr appointed News Editor

The Financial Times today announced two senior editorial appointments.  Edward Carr, 38, has been appointed news editor and Tracy Corrigan, 39, has been appointed editor of FT.com.

Carr, who has been at the FT for two and half years, is currently world news editor, in charge of the paper's international news pages. He started at the newspaper as the editor of the daily business features section Inside Track.  Before that, he spent thirteen years at The Economist, holding  reporting and editing positions including, latterly, business editor.  Carr replaces William Lewis who is moving to become business editor of The Sunday Times.

Corrigan is now deputy news editor.  She started at the FT in 1990 and has since held several posts, including New York correspondent, deputy editor of Lex and head of capital markets.  She succeeds Chrystia Freeland, who, following the successful redesign of FT.com and the introduction of Subscription Services, has been appointed editor of the Weekend FT.

Andrew Gowers, editor of the Financial Times, commented: 'I am thrilled to be able to strengthen our top editorial management team with these two appointments.  Ed Carr is a brilliant allrounder, with extensive business reporting and editing experience and bags of energy.  He is just the right person to take our all-important news operation to even greater heights. Tracy Corrigan has done a number of key reporting and editing jobs with sharpness and distinction.  Ed and Tracy will work together to take the already impressive integration of newspaper and FT.com operations to completion.'
