    Re: Someone returns to something as editor

    "an editor" implies that there are a number of editors

    "editor" tells you that he is the only editor in this case.

    The second example you give is referring to the person's position in a publishing company where he is a senior executive in the company. In this position it is more related to business practice than to the control of content and syntax.
