Parkhill Publishing, the magazine publishers set up by Eve Pollard has lost its group advertising director Fiona Davidson.
Her sudden departure last week swiftly follows that of ad director Jane Sproul who resigned from her post at the fledgling publishing company in April (MW April 27).
Davidson had taken on overall responsibility for the two titles so far launched by Parkhill, Aura and the monthly Wedding Day magazine.
Sources close to Davidson claim that her departure followed a bust up with chairman Pollard.
The former editor of the Sunday Express “dismissed” rumours of further departures. She claims to be in a position to appoint a new ad director “within weeks”.
Pollard says circulation figures for Aura which launched in April with a print run of 200,000 have yet to finalised, but adds: “We think that we are over the 100,000 mark.”
Wendy Henry, former editor of News of the World and Sunday People, has joined Parkhill to work on two launches. The first, a celebrity title, is to launch in the autumn.
