First in the same job, twice over?

I have read Marketing Week for many years and have always been impressed by the way it covers marketing news in depth and at speed. Sometimes, however, the subbing goes a bit astray.

“Jazz FM hires its first head of marketing” offers a good example.

“Jazz FM has appointed Nicola Young as its first head of marketing. Reporting to… chief executive… Young started her career at ad agency Young & Rubicam, and later moved to Jazz FM as marketing manager.”

Where she was, presumably, head of marketing, if she was the highest-level marketing person in the company, or if she reported upwards somebody else was.
