The New York Times announces new London bureau chief


Mark Landler has been named London bureau chief for The New York Times. The Times identified Brexit as an example of the kind of significant issues that will drive Landler’s new role.

Landler, a 26-year veteran of The Times, has served as bureau chief in Hong Kong and Frankfurt, and most recently as a White House correspondent.

In a memo, announcing Landler’s new position, The Times writes: “Mark is that rare correspondent who has already done it all, beautifully. Now, he will put his energy, passion and talent to the service of yet another critical assignment for The Times.”

In addition to his reporting experience, Landler is the author of “Alter Egos: Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and the Twilight Struggle over American Power,” which The Financial Times named a best book of 2016.
