Solomon, who “possesses the talent to see long distances and the innate ability to get things done,” will play a crucial role in the future of the Globe, which is pursuing a two-brand strategy on the Web, with two websites, and, McGrory said.

Chris Chinlund, deputy managing editor for news operations, will become managing editor/news. Chinlund, who has held numerous roles in her 30 years at the Globe, brings, along with her experience, ­“impeccable news judgment, journalism values of the highest ­order, and hands-on editing skill,” McGrory said.

Mark Morrow, deputy managing editor for Sunday and projects, will become senior deputy managing editor.

In addition to overseeing the Sunday paper, Morrow has been the senior editor on distinctive Globe projects for the past decade and edited two major Globe books, one on Mitt Romney and one on James “Whitey” Bulger.

“Name it, Mark has delved deeply into it, with wordsmithing skills and perspective that are unrivaled in my time at the Globe,” McGrory said. “With this new status, Mark has fresh license to interject his trademark creativity across an even broader spectrum of Globe work.”

The changes became effective Tuesday.

“It’s a real tribute to the breadth and depth of this newsroom that journalists of this ­caliber are ready-made for the task ahead. I’m excited about these changes, very much so. . . . Now let’s continue the great and important work of the Globe,” McGrory said in the ­announcement.
