Two journalists at the Financial Times have been appointed to new posts within the paper. Henry Tricks is now the senior UK corporate reporter and Elizabeth Rigby has taken over from Susanna Voyle as retail correspondent.
Tricks joined the FT in 1997 and was the residential property editor, a writer on the Lex column and the Mexico bureau chief before moving to the companies desk managed by Charles Pretzlik, UK companies editor.
Diane Summers, managing editor, said: “Henry has great ideas and a depth and range of experience that will bring additional firepower to our UK corporate coverage.”
Elizabeth Rigby joined the FT as a graduate in 1998. She has since worked on the public policy and companies desk, covered the financial services beat and reported for FT.com.
Rigby said: “I think retail is a really exciting area; all the stories are big and there are some great characters within the industry, which makes it all the more interesting.
“Retail affects everyone’s lives – it’s great to hear my friends discussing the field I cover.”
