A managing director and editor-in-chief is to leave in a restructure – weeks after a daily newspaper editor who reported to him also left the business.
Allan’s successor at the Glasgow-based Record, Murray Foote, left the company earlier this month to be replaced by Media Scotland digital director David Dick.
Allan’s role will not be replaced and David will now have full control of TM’s Scottish national titles and websites.
Other non-editorial areas of which Allan presided, such as finance and circulation, will now report directly into Trinity Mirror’s group finance and circulation departments.
Allan, pictured, said: “I am so proud to have worked with so many talented people in Scotland and across the Group over the last 24 years.
“I loved my time at Media Scotland, overseeing the best national and local titles in the land and the launch of exciting new sites such as Glasgow Live.
“I would like to thank all my colleagues at Trinity Mirror for their support – and wish them all the best for the future.”
Trinity Mirror chief executive Simon Fox added: “Allan has had a distinguished career at Trinity Mirror over the past 24 years. He edited the Daily Record and Sunday Mail and served as editorial director for our national titles.
“I am enormously grateful to Allan for his leadership of the business and wish him every future success.”
