Regional press group Archant has made the deputy managing director of its London division redundant.
In an announcement to staff, executive managing director for Archant London Enzo Testa said: “In the light of the current economic climate and trading conditions a review of the senior management team in Archant London has taken place.
“This has resulted in Garry Matthews, the deputy managing director, being made redundant, and a flatter structure for the business going forward.”
Last month, Archant announced it was to close half of its London offices, forcing nine local newspapers to relocate.
The change affects offices in East Ham, Romford and Dagenham – which house staff working for the Newham Recorder, Stratford Express, Dagenham Post, Havering Post and Romford Recorder – and offices in Swiss Cottage, Harlesden and Hornsey, which serve the Ham&High, Islington Gazette, Hornsey Journal and Willesden Times Series.
