Trinity Mirror has announced a raft of senior management changes to its Midlands titles following its failure to sell-off the division.
John Bills, regional managing director of Trinity Mirror’s Midlands business, will leave. He will be replaced on an interim basis by Steve Brown, currently regional managing director for Trinity’s north-east business.
Other senior departures include the managing director of Midlands Weekly Media, Mark Whittaker and Robby Ryan, regional finance director. Regional editorial director Neil Benson takes on the new role of regional business development director.
Trinity says the new team will focus its attention on digital and print. Its Midlands titles include the Birmingham Post and the Coventry Evening Telegraph.
