THR Adds London-Based International Business Editor

Here is about as plum an assignment as imaginable within the quadrangle of Hollywood trades. Beginning April 10, current Hollywood Reporter New York bureau chief and business editor Georg Szalai (pictured) will re-up in London as international business editor.

He will join senior staff member Stuart Kemp there, and be in close contact with other THR international contributors such as Scott Roxborough (Cologne) and Deborah Young (Rome). From today’s announcement:

“Georg is a first-rate business reporter whose breadth of knowledge and relationships on Wall Street remain an asset,” says THR editorial director Janice Min. “In his new role, he’ll expand The Reporter‘s reach as the global market becomes increasingly important to Hollywood and the entertainment industry overall.”

That international reach includes a Russian edition of THR launching next month and what the publication is calling its largest ever on-site coverage in May of the annual Cannes Film Festival. Min is currently on maternity leave, with Laurie Ochoa helping out in the interim as senior editor. Szalai has been with THR since 2001.
