London—The Financial Times announced that John Authers has been named global editor of “Lex,” the paper's business and financial column. Authers will start in the new role on April 1. He is currently the FT's investment editor and principal commentator on markets and investments. He writes the daily “Short View” column, with a related daily video on FT.com, and the “Long View” column, which appears every Saturday and which he will continue to write.

James Mackintosh, previously comment editor and hedge funds correspondent, will become FT's investment editor and “Short View” columnist. Authers succeeds Jo Johnson, who has edited “Lex” since 2008. Johnson is running for parliament and will remain a contributing editor, an FT spokesperson said.
