Trinity Mirror has appointed a new editorial development manager to help drive change across its regional titles.
Toby Chapman, currently executive editor of the group’s Liverpool titles, takes on the newly-created role from the end of January.
In his current role, Toby has been responsible for managing several major change projects, as well as taking the lead role in digital development.
Previously, he has held senior roles in news, production and sports journalism, and before taking on his current role he was editorial training and development manager for Trinity Mirror’s North West region.
Toby will report directly to Neil Benson, Trinity Mirror Regionals editorial director.
Said Neil: “We have a big development agenda for 2012, as we continue to transition the business from print to multimedia. Toby has an excellent track record, both as a journalist and a manager, and I’m delighted that he will be working with me and our editors.”
