Daily Mirror and Sunday Mirror editor to take on new role as part of management restructure at newspaper publisher
Lloyd Embley, the editor of the Daily Mirror and Sunday Mirror, has been promoted to editor-in-chief as part of a senior management restructure at publisher Trinity Mirror.
Embley, who will take on overall responsibility for Trinity Mirror’s other national title, the People, took over the editorship of its sister papers in May following the ousting of Richard Wallace and Tina Weaver.
Paula Scott, the publishing director of Trinity’s magazines, has been promoted to a similar role across the national titles.
David Emin, the director of national newspaper advertising at Trinity Mirror, has been promoted to a new role as managing director of sales and marketing across the entire publishing group.
The announcement comes a week after Simon Fox, the former HMV chief who took the reins at Trinity Mirror last month, merged the publisher’s national and regional newspaper operations.
Fox’s restructure saw the promotion of head of national titles Mark Hollinshead, who lost out on the role running Trinity Mirror to Fox, to chief operating officer of the combined operation.
As a result of the merger, Georgina Harvey, who has run the regional operation since 2005, will leave the company.
