Times Media says it's pleased to announce that Stephen Haw has been appointed editor of The Times, with effect from May 1.

Haw is currently the editor of the Sunday Times Express edition.

"Under Haw’s leadership, the Express edition has grown overall sales of the Sunday Times by more than 30% in the areas in which it is available."

Times Media says prior to his role as editor of the Express edition, Haw was the editorial product development director for Times Media.

"In this capacity he led the team which conceived and designed The Times."

"Haw was also the founding editor of the Sunday Times Lifestyle section, which won several industry awards under his stewardship."

Haw says of his appointment,"this is a wonderful opportunity to build on the success that has been achieved by my predecessors at The Times, Ray Hartley and Phylicia Oppelt. I feel very privileged to be building on their legacy."

Dominic Mahlangu, deputy editor of The Times, will serve as acting editor until May.

"Haw has been a consistent asset to Times Media, and with his editorial eye and key sense for innovation, we are very confident that he will continue to strengthen The Times as a daily news leader in South Africa," said Mike Robertson, Managing Director of Times Media.
