Reuters Names Regional EMEA Editor

Simon Robinson gets a new role.

Reuters has named Simon Robinson regional editor for EMEA.

Robinson has been with Reuters since 2010, most recently serving as deputy global enterprise editor and regional enterprise editor for EMEA.

“Simon has worked with a dedicated regional enterprise team, plus bureau chiefs and reporters across the region, to deliver powerful series that exposed corporate tax practices at Starbucks, Google and Amazon; explored the secretive, multi-billion dollar organization controlled by Iran’s Supreme Leader; deftly followed the corporate and money trail to document Putin’s fortune; and provided groundbreaking reports from the Middle East, among many other important projects,” wrote Reuters editor in chief Steve Adler, in a memo.

Robinson is succeeding Richard Mably, who will now run markets, commodities and energy coverage.
