A new head of digital publishing has been appointed to lead websites across a regional newspaper company.
He has held digital positions in Northcliffe for a number of years and was most recently its digital publishing director.
Robert’s appointment to the role follows the departure of Seamus McCauley who was head of publishing at Local People.
In his new post, Robert will report to chief operating officer Karen Kemble-Diaz and a statement from Northcliffe Digital said it now operated one publishing team across its digital portfolio.
His previous roles include being managing editor of Associated Northcliffe Digital and content strategy director for Northcliffe Media.
Local People now has a network of more than 100 community websites, with plans to launch another 100 by next year.
It was brought under Northcliffe Media this summer in a company restructure which saw Associated Northcliffe Digital disbanded.
