Trinity Mirror plc (the Group) announced a change in the management structure of the Group to create a more efficient model from which to develop its long term strategic direction as "One Trinity Mirror." The Nationals and Regionals divisions will be unified under one management structure -- ensuring that editorial, advertising and support functions can operate as effectively as possible across all of the Group's print and digital publishing operations. This will enable an accelerated rollout of digital products, says the company.
The consolidated publishing operations will be managed by Mark Hollinshead, who was appointed to the newly created position of chief operating officer and as an executive director of Trinity Mirror plc. Digital product development and the specialist digital businesses (Recruitment, Property and Digital Marketing Services) as well as the Group's contract printing operations will now be separately managed and report directly into the CEO.
The Group is also announcing its intention to close Happli, the recently launched daily deals business.
