MEXICO CITY (AP) — Victor Caivano, a veteran photographer who has led photo coverage for The Associated Press in Spain and Brazil, has been named news director for the Southern Cone countries of Argentina, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay.

The appointment was announced Wednesday by Latin America Editor Marjorie Miller.

In his new role, Caivano will be based in Argentina and lead a team of reporters, videographers and photographers across the Southern Cone. He will report to Miller and be the first all-formats bureau leader for the news cooperative in Latin America.

"Victor is going to bring a photographer's eye and a reporter's depth of knowledge to our coverage of the Southern Cone," said Miller.

"We are excited to have a news director from Argentina, who knows the Southern Cone, but also has a rich global perspective to bring to AP's audience in the region and the world," said John Daniszewski, senior managing editor for international news.

"Victor's appointment to this position is consistent with our ongoing work to unify our photo, text and video formats under cross-format leaders wherever possible, said Santiago Lyon, AP's director of photography. "His proven track record at covering and coordinating major stories will be highly valuable in this new role."

Born in Buenos Aires, the 40-year-old Caivano has served as chief photographer in Spain, Portugal and Brazil. He has also worked for the news agency from Mexico, Honduras and Miami, after joining the AP as an intern in Texas in 1997.

Caivano has covered the devastation of Hurricane Mitch in 1998, the 2000 presidential elections in Mexico, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, a gold rush in the Amazon, the London Olympics and this year's World Cup in Brazil, among other high-profile assignments.

Caivano, who is fluent in Spanish, English and Portuguese, holds a bachelors of journalism from the University of Texas at Austin.
