JPIMedia editor-in-chief Clifford set to depart
JPIMedia has announced the departure of its editor-in-chief Jeremy Clifford, as well as group commercial director Andy Sumner, company secretary Peter McCall, group development director Jason Rowse-Davies and interim chief financial officer Cormac O’Shea following a takeover of the regional publisher.
The move was announced by the company’s new executive chairman David Montgomery.
“In the first weeks we have been greatly encouraged by the passion and quality of the team we have met.
“However, as is typically the case following a change in ownership, we have decided to make some changes to allow the new management team to take over the leadership of the business”.
“All five have played a key role in managing this group through a very challenging period in its history.
“Each one has shown enormous skill, commitment and professionalism in overcoming the challenges faced by the sector and have contributed to creating a business with a flexible technology platform and a strong digital ethos.
“It is with this strong base that the new management team can now build out our strategy, and I would like to personally thank each of Andy, Jeremy, Peter, Jason and Cormac for their considerable contribution to JPIMedia over the years, and most recently for effecting a smooth transition of the business to National World.”
