The Associated Press has named Ricardo Mazalan, who has covered major stories ranging from the Rwandan genocide to the rise of Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, as deputy news director for photography and storytelling for Latin America and the Caribbean.

Mazalan will work closely with Senior Photo Editor Leslie Mazoch in the running of the regional photo desk in Mexico City, a desk he set up in 2006. Together they will focus on speed and breaking news and the quality of AP’s news, sports and enterprise projects.
