Reuters Americas desk editor and deputy regional editor Ciro Scotti is moving on to a position as-yet to be announced. Replacing him is a veteran reporter who has been with the wire service since 1998.
From today’s memo by Reuters Americas editor Dayan Candappa:
Tiffany Wu has done many of the key jobs at Reuters – reporter, bureau chief, top news editor and regional specialist editor who had responsibility for the companies desking team – giving her a rounded view of the editing desk’s pivotal role.
Tiffany moved to New York eight years ago as our tech, media and telecoms editor, and was promoted to run Company News in the Americas in 2010. She joined the Top News Team in September 2012 and has helped guide our coverage of a wide range of front page stories, from cyber attacks and the fallout from the Edward Snowden leaks to big corporate shake-ups and the Quebec train derailment disaster.
Wu, whose Asian postings included Taipei bureau chief from 2003 to 2006, will remain based in New York.
Also announced today by Candappa today: 23-year Reuters veteran David Chance is transitioning to the Washington D.C. posting of economics director, while Amran Abocar is returning after six years for Reuters overseas to Toronto, the city where she began as a company intern. Abocar, a Somali Canadian currently stationed in Singapore as Asia deputy commodities and energy editor, will start this summer as Reuters America Canada bureau chief.[Photo of Wu courtesy: Reuters]
