The managing director of a local news publisher in North Wales is to step down a month after his company was taken over by rival Newsquest.
NWN Media’s managing director David Faulkner will leave his role later this month. Faulkner has spent 40-years in regional news publishing, including the last eight years leading NWN Media.
The group publishes a number of newspaper titles across North Wales including the daily Leader (covering Wrexham and Flintshire) and North Wales Chronicle.
Faulkner is said to be continuing to work as a freelance for Newsquest to help further develop its contract printing business, according to a message to staff from Newsquest chief executive Henry Faure Walker.
Nick Fellows, managing director of Newsquest North West will take over management of NWN Media from 30 October.
