To this end, I am today delighted to appoint Ted Verity Editor of Mail Newspapers, a position that will include overall responsibility for the Daily Mail, The Mail on Sunday and You magazine. Ted is a Mail journalist to his core and uniquely placed to oversee the next chapter for our newspapers. Geordie Greig will be stepping down as Editor of Mail Newspapers at the end of this week.
Geordie has been at Associated Newspapers for nearly 10 years having become Editor of The Mail on Sunday in 2012 before becoming Editor of the Daily Mail in 2018.
During that time, the Daily Mail became the most-read UK newspaper and won Daily Newspaper of the Year an impressive three times.
In addition, during the pandemic, Geordie set up Mail Force and raised a combined total of £25 million for those in need; a truly breath-taking achievement. He has been a
remarkable editor. I welcome him as Consultant Editor.
This is a defining moment for the business and though it is a challenging future, it is also an exciting one.
