Congratulations to the new owners of the Evening Standard on their appointment of Sarah Sands as deputy editor.
This is a cracking hire and a real coup for Georgie Greig, the Editor.
We know Sarah well and she is a very, very good journalist. Her editorial skills are of great benefit but so are her business development skills. I dont know anyone better in the business at inderstanding what sells newspaper and she is going to prove invaluable to the ES as it trys (along with the rest of the newspaper industry) to figure out new models for success.
