Robert McKenzie is Editor of BBC News Labs, which leads innovation for the BBC across News.

Leading a small, multidisciplinary team of developers, technologists and journalists (with some people combining more than one skill) Robert introduced the informal team mission statement “we’re here to help”. News Labs acts as a bridge between News, BBC R&D and best practice in the rest of the industry - providing agile solutions to problems for journalists and new approaches to audiences.

Before joining News Labs, Robert spent nearly 25 years leading teams, launching output and creating new formats in business, personal finance and technology journalism.
