Gleave (pictured) joins the newspaper group from rival News Group, where he was head of mobile at its interactive division in Australia. He will report into Kerry O’Connor, interactive services director at Trinity Mirror.

His remit will include telephone and text activities such as its competitions and dating services. He will also be responsible for developing revenue opportunities in the fast-growing mobile advertising market.
