Trinity Mirror completes line up of new regional MDs

Trinity Mirror has completed its line-up of new regional managing directors with a new boss appointed for its Southern division.

The publisher announced a new management structure in November which saw the creation of seven new regional MD roles.

Simon Edgley, then in charge of Trinity Mirror Southern, became MD in the Midlands, Paul O’Halloran in Manchester and Huddersfield, Carl Wood in Merseyside and North Wales and Alan Edmunds in Cardiff.

Former Johnston Press boss Stuart Birkett was later given charge of the Newcastle division while Bob Cuffe returned to TM to take charge in Middlesbrough.

Now the final piece in the jigsaw has been completed with former Newsquest executive Thomas Moore joining Trinity Mirror Southern.

He joins Trinity Mirror from NRS Media, where he has been engaged in a number of media revenue driving initiatives across the UK as business development director.

His 20 years of experience in media publishing included six years as head of publishing for Newsquest where he had overall responsibility for establishing a strategic plan for digital publishing across six London regions and 27 websites.

Thomas joins Trinity Mirror on Monday 13 April.

Steve Anderson-Dixon, managing director of Trinity Mirror Regionals, said: “Thomas has a proven track record in leading publishing businesses to a high level of commercial success and possesses strong operational expertise in business change, transformation and re-structuring.

“I’d like to welcome Thomas to the business, and look forward to him starting with us next month.

“I’d also thank Simon for all he has achieved at Trinity Mirror Southern over a great many years, and wish him continued success in the Midlands.”

    Tom is a thoroughly decent, capable chap and Newsquest were crazy not to put him into a bigger role when they had the chance and now, NRS’ loss. Great appointment Steve.

    Never seems to be any blather about the need to cut costs when it comes to appointing MDs, does there?

    I think that Steve AD has made some good decisions of late and this looks like another one of them. I know Tom and he’ll do a good job.
