Times Media has announced that Stephen Haw has been appointed editor of The Times, with effect from 1 May. 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.

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 that conceived and designed The Times.
