New North West business website to rival Crain's and Insider

Regional business news website, The Business Desk, has launched a North West edition, reports How Do.

TheBusinessDesk Yorkshire launched in November last year, and owner David Parkin said its success pushed him to launch another edition.

He said: ‘The launch of the North West site was accelerated, partly by the success of the Yorkshire site and partly due to the fact that we wanted to establish ourselves here quickly.”

Parkin has employed three business journalists to help him take on already established business media in the area, Crain’s Manchester Business and North West Business Insider.

Former Manchester Evening News business editor Sheryl Moore, former Yorkshire Post deputy business editor James Graham and author and journalist Anastasia Weiner have joined Parkin, who has initially taken on the role of editor but is looking to recruit a replacement in the near future.
