Managers depart as Trinity merges regions

The managing director of Media Wales has today lost his job after parent company Trinity Mirror decided to merge the business with its North West and North Wales operation.

Keith Dye was made redundant after 24 years with the group, along with Media Wales finance director Stuart Turner.

The new North West and Wales super-division is to be headed by Sara Wilde, until now managing director of the North West and North Wales.

Andy McGreevy, currently finance director in North West and North Wales, will become finance director of the merged division.

Georgina Harvey, Managing Director, Trinity Mirror Regionals, said the decision to create this new Trinity Mirror region has been taken in response to the current challenging trading conditions.

“It also makes good strategic sense to group both our Wales businesses into a simplified structure as part of one region,” she added.

“We continue to invest in our businesses in South Wales with the implementation of new systems and the move to a new building.

“I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of everyone who has worked or come into contact with Keith and Stuart over the years to thank them for their contribution to the business and to wish them well for the future.”

Oh, the irony! Having overseen the Media Wales restructuring and redundancies, they’re now “downsized” as well! Other T-M managers might like to watch their backs from now.
