Don Durfee, managing editor of operations at Reuters, sent out the following announcement on Wednesday:
I’m delighted to announce that Arlyn Gajilan is the new Deputy Managing Editor for Operations. In her new role, she’ll report to me and will work across a range of issues from logistics to special projects, all with an eye to helping us deliver the best news file possible. Following Ed Tobin’s appointment as Deputy Top News Editor, she will also oversee editorial learning in the Americas on an interim basis.
Most recently, Arlyn was Deputy Editor for professional news in New York where she helped steer the legal news team and oversee the delivery of Reuters content to Westlaw and the former Intellectual Property & Science division. Arlyn joined Reuters five years ago following a stint at the Boston Consulting Group and a 15-year career in both print and digital journalism. She’s been a senior editor at Newsweek, Forbes.com, Conde Nast Portfolio, Time and Fortune. She’s a graduate of Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and Hampshire College, in Amherst Mass. In her off hours she plays competitive tennis, but admits that she usually prefers to be planted on her couch watching trash TV.
Arlyn starts her new role next Monday, November 21. Please join me in congratulating her.
