Former JP boss to chair environmental business

The former chief executive of Johnston Press has been appointed to a new role heading a business specialising in providing environmental information.

John Fry, who also led regional publishing group Archant for nine years, stepped down as JP boss last November following a three-year stint.

He has now been made non-executive chairman of amee, a business which specialises in helping businesses operate in a more environmentally efficient way.

The company has developed an online tool called the ‘ameescore’ which enables firms to get automatic reports of how far they are meeting the government’s Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC).

Before moving into the regional media sector with Archant in 2002, John spent nine years with information company Dun and Bradstreet.

John is also a non executive director of Startrite shoes and Transforming Education in Norfolk.
