Alison Wright appointed editor at The Week as David Salter steps down

Exit: Salter

Three year-old current affairs magazine The Week has appointed Alison Wright as its editor after David Salter stepped down.

Wright, formerly managing editor, shifts down into the role following the promotion of former editor Hall Greenland to editor-in-chief.

Salter will continue to work at The Week as a contributor.

Wright has held a number of roles at the UK-based newspaper, which she joined nine years ago filling various roles including writer, production editor and, latterly, managing editor.

Wright came to Sydney in 2008, when the Australian version of The Week launched.

She joins Hall Greenland, editor-in-chief, to run the editorial team.

“One of the most important challenges has been to retain the essence of the global title while ensuring our edition has its own Australian flavour. This is a very exciting time to be working at The Week,” Wright said.

The Week is published by Dennis Publishing and has editions in the US, the UK and Australia.
