Telegraph Media scraps marketing director role

Telegraph Media Group (TMG) has axed its marketing director role and promoted senior brand manager Emma Fraser to the new role of head of brand communications.

The group has scrapped the role following the departure of former marketing director Katie Vanneck earlier this summer. It is understood that Fraser’s role will include more marketing responsibility, including its pitch for a new advertising agency.

Fraser, who reports to TMG executive director of consumer markets Michael Moore, has four staff reporting to her.

Moore, who joined TMG from AOL Europe in July this year, is responsible for strategy, enterprises, marketing and research and also works on developing the company’s multimedia plans.

He has taken on the bulk of Vanneck’s responsibilities and it is understood that he was brought in as her boss prior to her departure from the group. She left to join Times Media as sales and marketing director in July.

TMG is seeking a new advertising agency after CHI & Partners resigned the newspaper’s £8m account to take on the advertising for Times Media Business. It won the account without a pitch.
