The Guardian has moved two senior staff to work on electronic

projects and named Charlie Burgess as travel editor and David Brindle

editor of the Society section.



Jeannette Page, who has been travel editor since the section became

standalone two years ago, is moving to work on new internet projects,

along with associate editor Colin Hughes.



Hughes joined the Guardian two years ago and has worked on special

projects such as revamping its education section. He will launch an

electronic education site next week.



Page will be replaced by Charlie Burgess, currently assistant editor

responsible for the Saturday edition of the Guardian. He will oversee

the launch of a travel web site under the Guardian Unlimited

umbrella.



Burgess said: ’I will be looking at who our readers are and where they

like to go. I will make the section more user friendly and further

acknowledge that our readers like to have fun.’



Brindle, who has been social services correspondent since 1988, will

take over from Malcolm Dean as editor of the Wednesday Society section.

Dean is to become a leader writer and columnist for Society.



Brindle joined the Guardian from the Financial Times, where he was

Labour correspondent between 1983 and 1988.
