Q magazine has promoted Gareth Grundy to deputy editor following his successful three-month stint as acting editor, writes Ruth Addicott.
Grundy has been standing in for Q editor Paul Rees, who was given three months leave to go travelling after his wedding. He joined the music title in 2001 as associate editor before moving up to become senior editor in charge of news/features and the “Now” section.
He has also freelanced for The Times, The Face and Arena.
The moves coincides with the appointmentthat of freelance Matt Yates as chief sub-editor, replacing Kerry Potter, who has been promoted to reviews editor.
Rees – who became the ?fth editor of Q in the space of two years when he was appointed last October – said: “Both Gareth and Matt have put in impressive performances over the past few months and I hope everyone joins me and the Q team in congratulating them on their new appointments.”
The magazine is in the process of recruiting a news editor.
