New editor for London free business daily City AM
May, who has no senior editorial experience, replaces David Hellier, who is leaving after just eight months as editor.
The 28-year old May, who has experience as a columnist and has contributed to City AM, describes his specialisms on LinkedIn as “speechwriting, campaigning, media strategies and public affairs”.
Chief executive Jens Torpe, who co-founded the paper 10 years ago alongside Lawson Muncaster, said: “As we enter the next decade of City AM, we are delighted to welcome Christian on board as editor. We were extremely impressed by his work at the Institute of Directors and as a contributor for City AM, and believe he has the energy and vision to build on the paper’s reputation within the business community.”
