Craig Winneker, currently deputy editor of The Economist Group's European Voice weekly newspaper, will be the Brussels-based Europe editor of www.techcentralstation.com.
European Voice supplies EU news and analysis for a business audience and Winneker's newly created position will cover much of the same ground as his existing role. 'It is a pretty similar sort of beat, but with a technology focus,' Winneker said.
EU regulation will be a major part of the remit, he added. He will also freelance, and will continue to write a column in European Voice.
Winneker starts in August, when he will report to Washington-based Tech Central Station editor Nick Schulz.
Before European Voice, where he has been for two years, Winneker was at Roll Call and Capitol Style, both Economist publications.
European Voice editor Dennis Abbott is currently hiring a replacement for Winneker, to replenish the paper's six-strong editorial team.
