Angela Quintal has been appointed editor of the Mail & Guardian newspaper.

Chris Roper was appointed editor-in-chief. Quintal would leave her position as editor of the Witness to take up the post. Roper would move from being M&G Online editor.

In a report on its website today, M&G chairman Peter Vundla said: “Roper will drive our digital-first strategy which has already seen strong growth in our mobile, online and tablet audiences.

“We are particularly thrilled that Angela has joined us. On the back of more than 20 years’ experience, she brings with her editing experience from the Mercury and the Witness, as well as from other senior writing and editing positions she has held during her career.”

Outgoing editor-in-chief Nic Dawes is taking up a position at the Hindustan Times in New Delhi.

In other restructuring, Verashni Pillay, M&G Online deputy editor, was promoted to associate editor. Alistair Fairweather, head of digital platforms, was promoted to chief technology officer.
