(Reuters) - Geordie Greig has been named as the new editor of Britain’s Daily Mail, the newspaper company Daily Mail and General Trust (DMGOa.L) said on Thursday.

Greig’s appointment follows the announcement on Wednesday that Paul Dacre was to step down from his role as editor in November to become the chairman and editor-in-chief of the title’s publisher, Associated Newspapers.

Ted Verity, currently deputy editor at the Daily Mail, will be the new editor of The Mail on Sunday, DMGT said in a statement.
