FT appoints new ED
In her new role, Mackay will lead the FT's Asia operations and represent the FT management board as well as take responsibility for advertising revenues in Asia.
Based in the regional head office in Hong Kong, she will continue to report to Ben Hughes, deputy CEO and global commercial director of the FT.
"Angela has been instrumental in growing our success in Asia. Her new role will enable us to enhance the co-ordination of our business across markets, enhancing the FT's ability to respond more effectively to the demands of our global audience of readers and advertisers," John Ridding, chief executive for Financial Times said.
"The FT is a leading global media title and with two of the world's fastest growing media markets-China and India-in Asia, it's an exciting time to boost our business. In Asia, we are always seeking new strategies and products to keep our readers and clients informed and front of mind. I look forward to working with the Asia team to make that happen," Mackay said.
Before this appointment, Mackay managed advertising sales revenues for both the print and online FT in the Asia Pacific region. She joined the FT in 2003 as Asia investment editor. Prior to FT, Mackay was the Asia editor for Sunday Business. Her previous jobs include working for The Economist, CNBC, The Times newspaper in London and the Australian Financial Review in Sydney.
