Webb quits Trinity Mirror

Trinity Mirror managing director Richard Webb has left the company following the announcement of a wider restructure of the publisher. Mark Hollinshead, managing director of the Scottish Daily Record and Sunday Mail, will add Webb’s responsibilities to his current role.

The change marks the first time all five of Trinity Mirror’s national newspapers and related portfolio of digital products will fall under one managing director.

The publisher says further announcements about the new organisational management structure will be made in the next few days.

The developments come in the wake of a series of cost cutting measures brought in by the publisher in a year that has seen it issue a predicted 10% fall in its full year profits as a result of the worsening economic climate.

It is not known if Webb has another job to go to and he declined to comment on his departure.

Sly Bailey, Trinity Mirror chief executive, says: “The new role will enable our national newspapers to fully embrace the changing media landscape.”
