Kat Downs Mulder has been named The Washington Post’s managing editor for digital, “a top leadership role in which she will oversee online operations as well as video, photography, graphics, audio and other departments of the newsroom,” reports The Post.

She replaces Emilio Garcia-Ruiz, who was named editor in chief of the San Francisco Chronicle in August.

The Post’s post adds that “Downs Mulder has worked for the organization since 2008. She most recently has been vice president of product and design, a business-side role involving digital operations. She previously was in charge of The Post’s graphics department.

“At 36, she is one of the youngest people named managing editor in The Post’s 143-year history. The position is one of four deputies to Executive Editor Martin Baron. Her appointment continues a reshaping of The Post’s top editorial ranks over the past three months.

“She is the third woman among the news organization’s four managing editors.”
