A trio of senior executives at regional publisher Newsquest are leaving the company in the latest management shake-up.
Vic Catanach, managing director for the North London division, recently oversaw a wide-ranging restructure of the group’s titles in the home counties that saw 16 weeklies placed under a single editor.
Now he too is leaving the business after 13 years, along with two other senior executives.
Also departing is Gavin Steacy, regional managing director for Wales, Gloucestershire and the South Midlands, who is retiring after nine years with the company, and Frank McCaffrey, managing director of Exchange & Mart, who leaves after 24 years.
Mike Harper will take over from Vic as managing director, North London and Essex, while Exchange & Mart will now come under Ewan Stark, managing director of Scottish-based online recruitment platform S1.
Meanwhile Gavin’s role will be split with Julia Lancett becoming managing director for Wales and Gloucestershire, and Trevor Sallis named MD of the Midlands South division, which will now include Herefordshire.
Said Henry: “I would like to thank Vic, Frank and Gavin for their contribution to the direction and management of their respective businesses and they leave us with our best wishes for their future endeavours.
“I am sure you will join me in wishing Julia, Trevor, Ewan and Mike every success with their new remits and responsibilities.”
