Tom Fitzpatrick has been appointed acting editor of Construction News while Rebecca Evans is on maternity leave.
Rebecca will be on maternity leave from Friday 25 November until late 2017.
Tom joined Construction News in 2011 as a reporter and has been deputy editor since July 2014.
He led CN’s #loveLIVES campaign in 2014 and was shortlisted for a British Society of Magazine Editor’s Rising Star award this year.
Rebecca Evans said: “Tom’s in-depth understanding of the industry, strong relationships with its major players and determination to use CN to showcase the very best of the industry make him the ideal acting editor and I’m delighted he’ll be leading Construction News and the CN team in my absence.”
Construction News is currently recruiting for a deputy editor to cover Rebecca Evans’ absence.
