The Financial Times has made Andy Davis editor of FT Weekend.
Davis succeeds Michael Skapinker, who has edited the weekend edition of the Financial Times since July 2005.
Davis joined the FT in 1995 and previously held the role of development editor.
He has worked in a range of editorial roles, including stints as deputy company news editor, deputy UK news editor and features editor.
He was also the founding editor of the now defunct Creative Business supplement.
Davis left Financial Times editorial three years ago on a secondment to the commercial department and moved to Delhi, to pursue the interests of the Financial Times in India.
He returned to the UK in September 2006 to become development editor, and he directed the paper’s most recent redesign.
Skapinker is stepping down as editor of FT Weekend to become a weekly business columnist, writer and editor.
He will write a weekly column for the op-ed page focusing on the interaction between business and society.
