Friends Reunited marketing chief takes wider ITV role

It comes as Friends Reunited co-owners Michael Murphy and Rob Mogford will also step down from the company.

Murphy, who is currently chief executive and finance director Mogford will step down later this year, although Murphy will move to the Friends Reunited board as a non-executive director.

Baker’s responsibilities will cover the Friends Reunited group, including the Genes Reunited and Friends Reunited dating brands. He will join during the summer, from Trinity Mirror where he is group director of digital recruitment.
