Senior execs leaving Trinity Mirror as it shakes up its nationals division

Two Trinity Mirror executives are set to leave the business as part of a senior management shake-up that sees another two promoted in the publisher’s national newspaper division.

A ‘reorganisation’in the upper echelons of the publishing group has resulted in Mirror Group Newspapers, the subsidiary responsible for publishing the Daily and Sunday Mirror and the People, losing the senior staff as powers are transferred to its national division.

Mark Hollinshead, managing director of Trinity Mirror Nationals, said the group would now look to a new ‘division-wide approach’to managing the performance of its newspapers.

John East, MGN circulation director, and Tim Anderson, head of MGN marketing, are leaving the business as Trinity Mirror changes the management structure.

John Howard, currently group circulation manager of the publisher’s national titles, has been appointed circulation director for the nationals division, with immediate effect.

In this newly created post, Howard will have an expanded role with operational responsibility for the circulation management and development of the company’s five national newspaper titles; the Daily Mirror, Sunday Mirror, the People and in Scotland, the Daily Record and Sunday Mail.

In a further appointment Lorraine Fraser will move in the new post of marketing director for the nationals division.

Fraser is currently sales and marketing director for Trinity’s Scottish Daily Record and Sunday Mail operation.

In their new posts both will report directly to Hollinshead.
