New editor for Telegraph as Lewis moves on

Tony Gallagher has been promoted from deputy to editor of the Daily Telegraph as Will Lewis moves on to launch and manage a new digital division at the company.
Lewis, who will remain editor-in-chief of the Telegraph newspapers and website, will set up and run the new "entrepreneurial" digital division which will have a staff of 50 and be based in Euston away from the company's main office in Victoria.
As managing director, digital, he will also oversee the Telegraph Media Group's existing digital businesses. Lewis was appointed Daily Telegraph editor in October 2006 and the paper is a clear favourite to be named Newspaper of the Year for its scoop on MPs' expenses.
Gallagher has been deputy editor of the paper since September 2007; he was previously executive head of news and edited the paper this autumn while Lewis was at the Harvard Business School. Gallagher was previously news editor of the Daily Mail.
Telegraph assistant editor and chief political commentator Benedict Brogan has been promoted to deputy editor of the Daily Telegraph. Executive head of news Chris Evans is now number three on the paper.
