IPS – Inter Press Service News Agency
May 20th, 2010


IPS is pleased to announce that from the 1st of June 2010, Sanjay Suri will assume the post of Editor in Chief and Diana Cariboni will be the associate Editor in Chief. This decision has come following a six-month transition period, successfully carried out by Suri and Cariboni, with a valuable contribution from Pablo Piacentini, one of the founders of IPS, and the current Director of the IPS Columnist Service.

These last six months, Suri and Cariboni have worked with their colleagues to strengthen the daily editorial quality of IPS copy, initiate a new series of multi-authored global stories and increase the flow of translations between our main languages. Among major events covered in this period, Cariboni led the team that reported from the Copenhagen climate change negotiations and Suri led the team that produced TerraViva at the Beijing + 15 celebrations in New York.

In his announcement IPS Director General Mario Lubetkin noted that Suri and Cariboni are skilled and energetic professionals with all the characteristics to lead the IPS news agency, which is at the heart of our organisation, and was delighted to make these new appointments.

We wish both of them the best of luck with this new challenge, and we know that they will be able to count on the support of all their colleagues at IPS.
