Greig nominated as new Standard editor
Tatler's Geordie Greig has been nominated to become the Evening Standard's new editor, it was announced today.
Mr Greig, 48, whose newspaper experience stretches to almost 20 years, has worked for the Daily Mail, Sunday Today and The Sunday Times.
His first job was at the South East London and Kentish Mercury in Deptford, London.
He has been editor of Tatler since 1999, during which time the magazine reached its highest circulation figure in its 300-year history.
It has previously been widely speculated that Mr Greig would be put forward for the role.
On January 21, it was announced that Russian oligarch and former KGB agent Alexander Lebedev had agreed to buy the Evening Standard newspaper for a nominal sum - thought to be £1.
Its publishers, Daily Mail & General Trust (DMGT), said a controlling share of London's weekday newspaper would be passed into the hands of Evening Press, a company formed by Mr Lebedev and his son Evgeny.
Evening Standard Ltd is a new company which has been set up to own the Evening Standard.
Mr Greig's nomination has been made subject to the sale of a majority stake in the Evening Standard to Evening Standard Ltd being completed in the second half of this month.
