The Industry Standard, the weekly US internet trade title, has

recruited the editor of rival title New Media Age, Mike Butcher, to help

its UK launch.



Butcher will be news editor of the UK title, reporting to editorial

director Michael Parsons. Parsons was deputy editor of the US edition

and worked there from its launch two years ago. He moved to London six

weeks ago to work on the UK title.



Parsons has also recruited Georgia Cameron-Clarke from the Daily

Telegraph, where she was deputy editor of its new media section,

Connected. Connected was replaced by a standalone supplement,

dotcom.Telegraph, in May. Cameron-Clarke left before the change. She

will be features editor on the Industry Standard, which is due to launch

this autumn.



Parsons has been joined in London by James Ledbetter, who was the

magazine’s New York bureau chief and will now be editor-in-chief of the

UK edition.
