Daily Telegraph assistant editor and former FT staffer Tracy Corrigan is the new editor of the Wall Street Journal Europe.
Corrigan succeeds Patience Wheatcroft who is leaving the papeer to take a seat in the House of Lords.
WSJ managing editor Robert Thomson said: “Tracy’s digital and financial expertise will be vital to the Journal’s ongoing and successful expansion in Europe.
“There are opportunities for great journalism across the continent and across platforms, and we will be doing our very best to take advantage of those openings.”
The UK edition of the Rupert Murdoch-owned Journal has a total circulation of just over 73,000 copies a day in Europe, some 43,000 of which are bulk give-aways.
According to the Audit Bureau of Circulations, the WSJ Europe has daily UK circulation of just over 12,000 copies.
