New FT Asia editor

We see that Victor Mallet has been appointed as the new editor of the FT Asia. He is currently chief Asia correspondent for the FT in Asia, based in Hong Kong and replaces John Ridding who, Pearson says, will move to London in June to become Chief Executive of the Financial Times.

The company notes that, under Ridding's leadership, "the FT has secured the highest readership among international titles in Asia with a strong lead among C-suite business executives (PAX Q4, 2005). The most recent ABC figures, for April 2006, show a 16 per cent year on year circulation increase".
