Johnston Press has announced the resignation of its chief operating officer Danny Cammiade
Cammiade leaves the company on 31 March in a restructure that sees its regional managing directors now reporting to group commercial director Neil Jones, and previous other direct reports of Cammiade reporting directly to chief executive Ashley Highfield.
Johnston said Cammiade, who has been an executive director since 2005, is leaving the company “after completing an agreed transition period” following the appointment of Highfield in November 2011.
Highfield commented: “I am very grateful for Danny's support during my first year at Johnston Press where his knowledge and understanding of local communities, and insight into publishing issues have been invaluable.
“I know from my time in the Company how well regarded he is both internally and in the industry as a whole and wish him well for the future."
Chairman Ian Russell added: “Danny has been an integral part of the executive management team and a main board director for many years and has made an immense contribution to the Company.
“The Board is grateful for his commitment and contribution to the business. We wish him well for the future.”
