Raymond E. Douglas (1948 – 29 June 2007), a graduate of Michigan State University, was an executive for the New York Times and is credited with helping to introduce colour to its news pages and to adding new sections in the 1990s.

He was the vice president for systems and technology for The New York Times Company, of which the newspaper is a part. He later became the corporate chief information officer. Douglas spent most of his career working with the computer systems that help design and publish newspapers and was deeply involved in 1997 when the paper, making the broadest changes in its format since the 1970s, introduced a wide use of color in advertisements and photographs and added new sections, including separate weekday sports and arts sections.

He died on June 29, 2007 in St. Augustine, Florida from a pulmonary embolism.
