Regional publisher Local World has carried out an editorial reshuffle at a series of titles in Hertfordshire and Essex.
The current advertiser editor, Sue Webb, will become group features editor working across the whole Herts and Essex portfolio.
Julie has been with Herts and Essex for four years, joining as deputy editor of the Mercury in September 2010 and taking over as editor in January 2013.
She said: “I am delighted to be taking on this role at an exciting time for the Herts and Essex portfolio. I believe with the support we now receive from Local World South East we are in one of the best positions we have ever been to take on the new challenges in the industry.”
Sue, who will report to Julie will be responsible for the new property and leisure supplements across the portfolio and will also co-ordinate commercial features and projects.
She said: “I am excited to be taking up this new role and am relishing the challenge. The new property and leisure supplements will add even more value to what are already great products – and I am looking forward to bringing fresh, innovative ideas to the table to boost our commercial opportunities.
She then returned to Herts and Essex Newspapers, fulfilling a number of senior editorial roles, latterly as editor of the Advertiser series for the past six years.
Both take up their new roles with immediate effect.
