Russell Parsons named Marketing Week editor

Russell Parsons has been named editor of Marketing Week.

Russell replaces Ruth Mortimer, who has been promoted to the position of content director for Centaur’s marketing titles. She will continue to have an active role overseeing Marketing Week but all operations on the website and print magazine will now be led by Russell.

He regularly contributes to the national media on marketing matters and has recently taken part in high-profile European panels on trust.

Russell has also played a role as a mentor within Centaur, with his reporters winning internal Centaur awards for editorial excellence.

Andria Vidler, chief executive of Centaur Media, says: “It is always very rewarding to be able to promote people internally and I am delighted that Marketing Week will have Russell at its helm. It is one of Centaur’s flagship publications and a key brand for the business, driving innovation and growth for the group.”
