Deutsch the new Financial Times man for Indonesia


Here’s a quick update for those observing the media scene in Indonesia:

Anthony Deutsch has been appointed Jakarta Correspondent at the Financial Times and will take up the role on 8 March. Anthony was previously Bureau Chief of the Associated Press’s Indonesia and East Timor bureau.

Looks like he beat out quite a few contestants for the post vacated by John Aglionby.

In the meantime, concolonces to the family of Maggie Ford, a former Indonesia correspondent for Euromoney and Eurofinance magazines, whom the JFCC said was  believed to have died on the morning of Feb 23 from a heart attack.

“Maggie, in her 60s, served on the JFCC executive committee and had a long history in Indonesia before moving back to Brighton in 2006. Our sympathies go out to her family and friends,” said a JFCC email to its members. Unspun extends deepest condolonces too. Maggie always added color to the JFCC and other networking functions with her very British accent.
