A brand and communications manager has been appointed at the Midland News Association, publisher of Britain’s best selling regional newspaper the Express & Star.

Chris Leggett, who has been the MNA’s electronic editor in charge of online content since 2006, will start in the newly-created role on 5 March.

He will take responsibility for the positive promotion of the MNA brands, which also include Britain’s fifth highest selling evening newspaper the Shropshire Star as well as weekly newspapers in the West Midlands, Shropshire and surrounding counties.
