Most recently, Edgecliffe-Johnson served as New York correspondent at the FT. Prior to that he spent three years on the City desk of The Daily Telegraph, which he joined direct from university in 1994.
'Our readership is juggling everything from corporate responsibility to employee rights to what their IT director tells them to spend money on. The pages range from profiles of senior business leaders to case studies that have not been anywhere else to the latest thinking on business strategy,' he said.
Inside Track comprises three or four pages daily and has four subsections which run once a week: enterprise, law and business, business travel and business education.
The Inside Track section began four years ago under Edgecliffe-Johnson's predecessor, Edward Carr, who has been appointed the FT's world news editor.
Inside Track's deputy editor Paul Solman retains that role.
