Trinity Mirror marketing chief quits

Trinity Mirror is looking for a marketing director, covering all its major titles, following the departure of Margaret Harvey.

Harvey, who has worked at the newspaper group for over four years, left her post last week without another job to go to.

Harvey was originally marketing director for the Independent, then owned by the Mirror Group.

She became marketing director of Mirror Group’s Sunday tabloids in 1998. The following year Harvey was appointed marketing director of all the group’s titles when Jill Playle, the previous marketing director of The Mirror, left to head IC24.

Since joining the company, Harvey has overseen the group’s &£13m advertising spend.

Harvey says: “The decision was mutual.”

In 2000, Mirror Group was taken over by Trinity.
