COMAG managing director David Garratt is to leave the group after 22 years. The National Magazine Company and CondÃ© Nast, the owners of COMAG, last week announced his impending departure.
Garratt said: “Other horizons beckon; it’s time to check out and undertake some personal reengineering.
COMAG has become a global brand during the past 20 years. I would like to record my thanks to the hundreds of publishing clients, wholesalers and retailers who have supported us.”
Duncan Edwards, managing director of NatMags, said: “David has been an important and influential figure in the news-trade business. He has done a great job, leading COMAG for the benefit of its shareholders and clients over the past 15 years.”
A five-month interregnum is planned to allow time for Garratt’s successor to be appointed.
