Sunday Times City editor Oliver Shah has been promoted to business editor.
Shah has worked at the Sunday paper since 2010, starting out as a business reporter before being becoming City editor in 2016.
While working as a retail correspondent he was named business journalist of the year at the 2017 London Press Club Awards and the National Press Awards for his investigation into Sir Philip Green’s £1 sale of BHS.
Shah said: “I am excited and honoured to take on the best job in business journalism, and I look forward to helping deliver the ground-breaking investigations, scoops and in-depth features our readers love.”
Sunday Times editor Martin Ivens said: “Oliver is a courageous journalist, with a nose for scoops. The best is yet to come.”
Shah began as a freelance business journalist in 2005 before moving to City AM as a reporter in 2009.
He will take up his new post later this summer, replacing Iain Dey who is moving into PR.
