John M. Geddes is an American journalist and one of two managing editors of "The New York Times", along with Jill Abramson. Geddes serves as managing editor for news operations, with responsibilities including production, budgeting and staffing. He and Abramson were appointed to their positions by executive editor Bill Keller to succeed former managing editor Gerald M. Boyd. Boyd stepped down on June 5, 2003, along with the paper's former executive editor, Howell Raines, in the wake of the Jayson Blair scandal.

Geddes joined The Times in 1994 as its business editor and became deputy managing editor in 1997. Prior to joining The Times, he was chief executive of BIS Strategic Decisions, a market research company that was acquired by his previous employer, Friday Holdings, an investment partnership.

From 1976 to 1993, Geddes worked in various capacities in the newspaper industry. At "The Wall Street Journal", for which he worked for 13 years, his assignments included bureau chief in Bonn, deputy managing editor and managing editor of The Wall Street Journal/Europe, and assistant managing editor and national editor for the parent paper in New York. He was also a reporter for The A.P.-Dow Jones News Service and for The Ansonia Evening Sentinel in Connecticut.
