Sunday Telegraph
buisiness editor William Lewis has been confirmed as Neil Collins’
successor as Daily Telegraph business editor.
 
City betting firm Cantor Index had Lewis, 36, as
a 10-1 outsider but the Telegraph today confirmed that he had beaten
favourites Sunday Telegraph business editor Robert Peston and Daily
Telegraph deputy City editor Kate Rankin.
 
Lewis has been business editor of the Sunday
Times for three years and before that spent eight and half years at the
Financial Times where his jobs included global news editor, mergers and
acquisitions editor and investment correspondent. He has also covered
business for the Mail on Sunday.
 
Lewis has yet to negotiate a leaving date and
both internal and external candidates are expected to be considered as
his replacement at the Sunday Times.
 
Daily Telegraph editor Martin Newland said: ‘I am
delighted that Will is joining us. He has enormous energy and a
remarkable CV for a man of 36. He will lead an unrivalled and dedicated
business team.”
