Mark Di Stefano back at work in new role after FT departure

• The founder and CEO of The Information, Jessica Lessin, announced the appointment overnight.

Just five weeks after Australian journalist Mark Di Stefano stepped down from his role as media reporter at The Financial Times in London, he has fired up his Twitter account again with details of his new role.

Di Stefano is an advocate for the social media platform and he had been uncharacteristically absent from it following his Tweet of May 2 which read:

Hi, letting everyone know today was my last day at the FT. This afternoon I offered my resignation. Thank you everyone who has given support. I’m now going to take some time away and log off x

His time away is coming to an end now that he has accepted a position at the online subscription news brand The Information. Di Stefano will be reporting from London for the San Francisco-based publishing business covering Amazon in Europe and Big Tech’s European battles.

The founder and CEO of The Information, Jessica Lessin, announced the appointment overnight.

Di Stefano was involved in a controversy earlier this year while at The FT when he was accused by The Independent of listening in on sensitive Zoom meetings held by its senior managers telling staff about salary cuts and furloughs. The FT subsequently suspended Di Stefano before he resigned soon after.
