Sinclair Stewart, currently manager of news and sports at The Globe and Mail, has been promoted to deputy editor.

Editor-in-chief David Walmsley said Stewart will assume the new role on Monday.

“I have made this appointment to provide further emphasis to what I believe the editorial department needs—consistently disciplined journalistic muscle,” he said in a memo obtained by J-Source. “He deserves this promotion because, constitutionally, he is a journalistic leader wherever he turns his attention.”

Stewart’s responsibilities will include looking after day-to-day operations and leading story meetings, representing Walmsley at the executive level when he is away, talent acquisition and “pushing our western initiative further and harder as an advocate in Toronto and in BC.”
