Bret Stephens, who currently writes the Global View column for the Journal has been appointed deputy editorial page editor for the paper’s editions in Europe and Asia. He will continue to write his weekly column while overseeing the opinion pages both online and in print, and he will be managing the Far Eastern Economic Review and the Journal‘s foreign affairs columnists as well.

Meanwhile, Brian Carney will be moving to London to serve as editorial page editor of The Wall Street Journal Europe, a post he formerly held from 2004 until 2005. Carney’s editorials about mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac scored him a Gerald Loeb Award for commentary this year.
