Said Simon: “It’s a tremendous honour to be joining North West Business Insider as editor and I very much look forward to developing the magazine and producing some great content.
“I have worked for several national newspapers, worked as a broadcast journalist for the BBC, edited weekly papers like the Salford Advertiser and managed production of magazines but this is undoubtedly my greatest challenge and opportunity.
“It is also an exciting time to be in business in the North West and I want to reflect this energy in the magazine.”
Simon begins his new role today.
