A business leader with experience working across Europe has been unveiled as the new chairman of JPIMedia.
The successor company to Johnston Press has announced the appointment of Parm Sandhu as its non-executive chairman with immediate effect.
Parm’s previous experience includes serving as chief executive of German cable company Unitymedia for seven years until 2010, and six years as a non-executive director of Eircom between 2012, following its exit from an Irish administration process, and its successful sale to Iliad S.A. & NJJ Capital in 2018.
He joins the JPI board alongside directors John Ensall and David Duggins and company secretary Peter McCall.
Parm is currently chairman of Greek telecoms group Wind Hellas, as well as a non-executive director at Central European Media, a news led free-to-air broadcaster in Central and Eastern Europe.
He is also a non-executive director at Hibu, the digital marketing business that was formed out of Yell.
David King, chief executive of JPIMedia, said: “I am delighted that a business leader of Parm’s seniority has agreed to join us and both I and the rest of the management team look forward to working with him.
“His appointment also shows the real commitment that JPIMedia’s owners have to the business and their determination to build a strong board.”
