Award-winning journalists to join Thomson Reuters

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2011) -

Stephen J. Adler unveils all-star leadership team to run Reuters News

New York, April 19, 2011 Thomson Reuters announced today the appointment of Pulitzer Prize-winner Paul Ingrassia and former Time Magazine managing editor Jim Gaines as key members of Editor-in-Chief Stephen J. Adler's new leadership team.

Stuart Karle, former general counsel of The Wall Street Journal, and Reg Chua, former editor-in-chief of The South China Morning Post, have also signed on in senior positions.

The new members join Chrystia Freeland, editor for Thomson Reuters Digital; Amy Stevens, executive editor for Professional News; Reuters Breakingviews editor Hugo Dixon; and Adrian Dickson, global editor for editorial product, on Adler's senior team.

The appointments accompany an editorial reorganization that separates content from operations to enable Reuters to plan coverage in a more unified, coherent manner while strengthening the operations that are designed to support it.

"To become the world's leading source of news, we must be second to none in speed, accuracy, relevance, and fairness, but also-and crucially-in enterprise, insight, analysis, and originality," Adler said. "Our extraordinary combination of new and existing talent, along with a stronger organization to support them, will help us achieve all these goals."

Here is more information about the new appointees and their roles:

* Paul Ingrassia, a Pulitzer Prize-winning automotive writer and former president of Dow Jones Newswires, has been named deputy editor-in-chief to oversee news content creation; * Jim Gaines, former managing editor of Time, Life and People magazines, will become ethics, standards and innovation editor to articulate and enforce the highest standards of accuracy, fairness, and sound reporting practices, while spurring incisive journalism; * Stuart Karle, former general counsel to The Wall Street Journal, will become chief operating officer to oversee all support functions for the news organization; and * Reginald Chua, previously editor-in-chief of The South China Morning Post, will join Reuters as data editor, with a focus on mining Thomson Reuters' rich data trove.
