Jonathan Ford is returning to the Financial Times as chief leader writer after leaving Reuters.

Ford was commentary editor at Reuters but left the company late last year after it bought Breakingviews, the financial website he helped to launch ten years ago.

After leaving Breakingviews in 2007, Ford worked as deputy editor of Prospect magazine and in December 2008 joined Reuters to head its financial commentary service.

Before becoming a journalist, Ford worked as an investment banker at Morgan Grenfell and worked on the FT’s Lex column in the 1990s.

In his new role, Ford will be responsible for writing and commissioning the FT’s editorials, leading a team of four leader writers.
