Time magazine is fine-tuning its staff.

The Time Inc.-owned weekly made a slate of internal promotions and new hires Tuesday, as part of its reorganization and expansion efforts.

The magazine promoted Tom Weber to the role of executive editor from his previous position as assistant managing editor. In his new role, he will continue to oversee Time’s coverage of business, technology, science and ideas, while working to develop new print and digital initiatives, among other things.

Susanna Schrobsdorff adds the title of assistant managing editor and retains her title of Living editor. Courtney Harris Weingarten has been promoted to copy chief from deputy copy chief, and Christine Lim assumes the role of editorial technology manager, a new job, which focuses on advancing “key technology initiatives for the newsroom.” One such initiative will be a testing effort around Time’s daily newsletter, The Brief.

Elizabeth Dias has been added as a correspondent, focusing on faith, while Katy Steinmetz also joins the publication as a correspondent, covering San Francisco.

For its Web site, Time created a new role of homepage director for Alex Fitzpatrick, and it added Andrew Katz as homepage editor.

Elissa Englund and Rob Horning were promoted to the title of deputy copy chief.

New hires include Haley Sweetland Edwards, a former Washington Monthly editor, who will become a correspondent in Time’s Washington bureau; Ashley Ross, an assistant editor from shape.com, who will join Time as associate editor, and Nolan Feeney of The Atlantic, who comes to Time as a Web reporter.
