The former editor of a Scottish daily has launched his own media consultancy firm.
Charles McGhee was in charge of Glasgow daily The Herald for three years and prior to that was editor of its sister title the Evening Times for six years.
He resigned in July last year since when The Herald, Evening Times and sister weekly the Sunday Herald have come under one editor-in-chief, former Evening Times editor Donald Martin.
According to his company website, Charles McGhee Media Consultancy offers organisations “a pragmatic approach to developing and improving media products and services”.
He is performing consultancy work on external and internal communications and crisis management along with training and development.
Charles’ press career spanned three decades during which time he also held senior roles on the Daily Record, Sunday Mail, Scotland on Sunday and the Sunday Times as well as a stint with the BBC.
He is also a former president of the Society of Editors and past member of the Press Complaints Commission.
