With Thomson Reuters Reorg Come New Hires

Along with the moves and (sadly) layoffs that have thus far marked the reorganization of Thomson Reuters come some new hires, reports PaidContent.

Former Dow Jones Newswires president Paul Ingrassia will serve as Adler’s deputy editor in chief and The Daily ME Jim Gaines will now be overseeing ethics, standards and innovation. PaidContent notes that he’s charged with “codifying and enforcing guidelines governing ‘accuracy, fairness, and sound reporting practices.’”

As predicted, Stuart Karle joins as chief operating officer, and Reginald Chua, previously editor-in-chief of The South China Morning Post, will become Reuters’ data editor.

Side note: by our count Gaines is the fifth staffer to leave the Daily, just two months after the iPad newspaper’s launch.

Reuters Reorg Begins

Reuters editor in chief Stephen Adler will announce an editorial reorganization today, Talking Biz News reports.

According to sources, the changes are Adler’s way of “putting his stamp on the organization”—not necessarily because they are needed. Adler, former Businessweek editor in chief, started at Reuters in February.

Likely targets for cuts: editors. Talking Biz News points out that Reuters has three editor levels: “specialist editors, such as those overseeing company coverage, stock market coverage, Treasuries, commodities and other specializations; bureau chiefs, who oversee regional coverage; and a team of managing editors. There’s also a group of editors called ‘Top News.’” One of these levels is likely to be cut.

Also, global managing editor Betty Wong is leaving the news service as of May 27 and Stuart Karle, former general counsel for the Wall Street Journal who is now advising Adler on the reorg, is expected to be offered a management position when the dust settles.
