WASHINGTON (AP) — The Washington Post has named a digital strategy editor as the newspaper's managing editor in charge of digital initiatives and multimedia operations.

Emilio Garcia-Ruiz was named managing editor on Friday. He will work with Kevin Merida, the managing editor in charge of news and features coverage.

Post Executive Editor Martin Baron says Garcia-Ruiz has been instrumental in helping the Post to innovate, bringing a team of developers into the newsroom and releasing more than a dozen digital products in the past year.

Garcia-Ruiz is a graduate of the University of Maryland. He began his career at the Washington Post before moving to the Orange County Register, Los Angeles Times and St. Paul Pioneer Press. He returned to the Post in 2001 and has served as sports editor and local editor.
