A regional digital boss who served as president of the Society of Editors in 2015-16 has been made redundant from his role.
Nick Turner, left, has left the Carlisle-based CN Group after his role of digital strategy chief was axed.
The move comes just months after Nick hosted the SoE’s annual conference in Carlisle in his role as president.
Nick, who had worked for the CN Group for the past 25 years, is also organiser of the Digital Editors’ Network which brings together digital managers from the regional and national media.
His departure was announced in a message to staff by group development director Jonathan Lee on Friday.
It read: “I wanted to let you all know of changes to our digital operation. We will be appointing a senior group wide digital director to lead one CN Digital operation and ensure we maximise the opportunities for our business.
“Our existing digital teams, who have been reporting to Stuart Cooke and Nick Turner, are forming one CN Digital team. Unfortunately Nick Turner’s role as digital strategy manager has been made redundant and Nick has left the business.
“The digital team who reported to Nick will report to Stuart until we announce the appointment of a group digital commercial director.
“I would like to put on record my thanks to Nick for the work he has done for CN Group over many years. I am sure you would like to join me in wishing Nick all the best with his future career.”
Nick added: “Obviously I am very sad to be leaving CN Group after 25 years, but am seeing this as a positive opportunity to take a fresh look at my career.
“In the meantime if anyone would like to get in touch my new email is firstname.lastname@example.org.”
