New appointments announced at the Evening Standard

The news brand today announces two new positions.  

Executive editor and head of news Jack Lefley has been promoted to deputy editor (News), after 14 years at the Evening Standard, working in many capacities across the operation.

He will continue to oversee news on all of our platforms while stepping up to take on a broader range of editing and management responsibilities. 

Also announced this week, Neil Hunter has been promoted to associate editor (digital operations). Hunter has been instrumental in the company’s pivot to digital-first working, delivering a new CMS and retraining the entire team to work across platforms. 

He will continue to evolve our digital offering, introducing a range of innovations to help our business operate more effectively, and retains responsibility for the team’s digital training requirements.
