The managing director of Trinity Mirror Regionals is set to leave the business, the company has confirmed.
Rachel Addison, left, joined the publisher at the time of its 2015 merger with Local World, of which she was chief operating officer.
After overseeing the integration project between the two groups she then went on to become MD of Trinity Mirror Regionals.
Her forthcoming departure signals a return for TM’s former chief operating officer Mark Hollinshead who has been drafted in to lead a strategy review of the regional division.
Trinity Mirror has confirmed the changes to HTFP but the company has declined to comment further.
Rachel had been involved in the regional press since 2005, when she became regional finance director for Northcliffe after joining the company from Boots.
Between 2009 and 2012 she served as group finance and executive director, before taking on the COO role for Local World.
Mark was chief operating officer of TM until 2014 when he left to become group chief executive with Nova International, the Newcastle-based sports management business which owns the rights to the Great North Run.
