Sunday Times announces raft of new appointments

Decca Aitkenhead: "The Magazine has always been the home of many of my favourite writers, and it's a real honour to be joining them."

Decca Aitkenhead will be starting a new position as chief interviewer at The Sunday Times from August. She is joining from The Guardian, where she twice won interviewer of the year at the Press Awards and is known to be one of the best interviewers in British journalism.

Decca Aitkenhead said: "I couldn't be more excited about joining The Sunday Times. The Magazine has always been the home of many of my favourite writers, and it's a real honour to be joining them."

Eleanor Mills, Editorial Director of The Sunday Times and Editor of The Sunday Times Magazine, said: "I have been a long-term admirer of Decca's brilliant interviews and am very excited that she will be joining the Sunday Times Magazine as our star interviewer."

James Coney is appointed money editor, and will join in mid-September from the Daily Mail where he is currently finance editor. Peter Conradi, the acting Sunday Times money editor, will be taking up a new role as Europe editor, and will be based in Paris from September.

There are three new appointments within the business team under new editor Oliver Shah and his newly-appointed deputy, John Collingridge.

Rachel Millard is appointed energy and resources correspondent and joins from the Daily Mail. Ben Woods is appointed technology, media, and telecoms correspondent and joins from The Telegraph. Sam Chambers is appointed retail correspondent and joins from Bloomberg. All three will start their new roles in the next three months.

Martin Ivens, Editor of The Sunday Times, said: "I'm delighted that The Sunday Times will have this influx of new talent at this exciting stage for us, as our subscriber growth continues apace. We are committed to producing quality, trusted journalism across all our sections and this means investing in talented journalists in every department. I look forward to welcoming them all."
