Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce that Jim Impoco has been named executive editor of Thomson Reuters Digital.

Drawing on his award-winning experience as Reuters inaugural enterprise editor, Jim will play an essential role in integrating the company’s online, mobile and digital properties with the wider news operation. He will report directly to Chrystia Freeland and remain based in New York.

Jim, whose reinvention of The New York Times Sunday Business section won acclaim, will apply the same skills to building readership at Reuters.com as well as on new digital platforms.

Jim joined Reuters in September 2009. Previously, he held positions as assistant managing editor at Fortune Magazine, deputy editor of Conde Nast Portfolio, correspondent for the Associated Press based in Tokyo, and Tokyo bureau chief for U.S. News & World Report.

Please join me in congratulating Jim on his new role.

Many thanks,
Steve
