Movers: Appointment at The Daily Telegraph

The Daily Telegraph has rejigged its senior editorial management line-up, awarding greater responsibility to its joint deputy editors.

William Lewis, who is reportedly being groomed to take over as a future editor, has been handed responsibility for the Telegraph's move from Canary Wharf to Victoria. Damian Reece adds the role of City editor to his responsibilities as joint deputy editor. Lewis previously edited the business section.

Reece, 39, joined The Daily Telegraph as its deputy City editor in November 2005. He moved from The Independent, where he was the City editor for two years during its transformation from broadsheet to compact. Reece was also the assistant City editor of The Sunday Telegraph from 1999-2003.

Before that, he was on the launch team of Sunday Business, then edited by Jeff Randall, now the Telegraph's editor-at-large. Lewis was appointed City editor last August, after he was recruited from The Sunday Times.
