His wealth of experience bringing provocative and important voices to the web will help to sharpen our unique perspective and deepen our dynamic mix of thought-provoking voices,” said Janine Gibson, the Guardian US’s editor, in a statement. “We’re thrilled he’s joining our growing US team.”
Sullivan will begin at the Guardian on February 10.
