The Financial Times has made four senior appointments that aim to strengthen its digital focus. Digital subscriptions are now at 504k, accounting for 70% of the FT's total circulation, and the title hopes the appointments will "focus on enhancing the FT’s digital products and services, offering readers more opportunity to consume and engage with FT journalism".

From May, Renée Kaplan will take on the newly-created role of head of audience engagement.

Effective immediately, Bede McCarthy has been appointed director of product. Mark Alderson is now head of operations, and Kevin Wilson is visual news editor.
