Lord Saatchi, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Centre for Policy Studies, announces the appointment of Robert Colvile as the new Editor of CapX.
"I am delighted that Robert has agreed to take over from Iain Martin as Editor of CapX. Iain has achieved great success in building CapX into one of the leading platforms for the best of the world's thinking on free markets and competition. Robert is now the ideal individual to build on Iain's achievements, combining both journalistic expertise and a deep knowledge of new media. As well as having been Head of Comment at the Telegraph and News Director at BuzzFeed, he is the author of the prescient pamphlet, ‘Politics, Policy and the Internet’ (published by the Centre for Policy Studies in 2007), while his recent book, ‘The Great Acceleration: How the World is getting Faster, Faster’, has been widely acclaimed as a fascinating insight into how the disruptive forces of technology are rapidly changing nearly every aspect of modern life."
Robert Colvile comments:
"I'm very excited to be joining CapX and would like to thank Iain Martin and the team for their pioneering work. In a world that's changing faster than ever, CapX's founding mission has never been more important – to help people navigate those changes by providing a platform for the best thinking and writing on politics, free markets and ideas from across the world."
Iain Martin comments:
"In just two years, CapX has established itself as a leading medium for the world's best thinking on free markets and on why true capitalism has successfully lifted billions of individuals out of poverty. I am very proud of the team's achievements and am sure that, under Robert's direction, CapX will continue to thrive."
