Lindsay Cook, divisional managing director of CMPi, has left the B2B publisher.
Cook, who was MD of the specialist markets division of CMPi, left the company late last year – it has emerged – after a shake-up of the different portfolios she oversaw.
As MD for specialist markets, Cook oversaw the entertainment, agriculture, healthcare, travel, and the licence trade sectors, which included titles like Music Week and The Publican.
These titles were reorganised under new divisions in September last year, effectively making Cook’s position redundant, a spokesman for CMPi said.
The spokesman added: ‘There were a number of changes in reporting that culminated in Lindsay leaving. We have reorganised and redefined some of the portfolios, reuniting some of the exhibition portfolios with their magazine sisters within a different division, so the large division of specialist markets became a much smaller entity, so really her position became redundant.”
The medical titles including Pulse and C&D were placed under a specialist medical publishing division. Music and entertainment technology titles were brought under one portfolio. Licence trade titles like The Publican have been moved into one portfolio with associated events.
Cook had previously been editorial director of CMPi. Her career includes time as a financial journalist at The Daily Telegraph and The Times.
She became group managing editor of Express Newspapers in 1997, and was also the first female business editor of The Times, as well as a duty editor on the paper.
