Johnston Press announces new CCO

In a bid to support revenue growth across its print and digital portfolio, Johnston Press has announced the appointment of a newly-created chief creative officer role.

Starting with immediate effect, Andrew Cunning - formerly of Harper Collins Publishers and the Independent - will be responsible for delivering "innovative and market-leading" advertising and creative services, managing 40 creatives alongside a team of digital product managers across the UK.

He will report to the publisher's chief digital and product officer, Jeff Moriarty.

"Having built his career mentoring teams and stakeholders on how to adopt new ways of working for today's rapidly evolving publishing business, Andrew is the ideal candidate for this newly created role," said Moriarty.

"His creativity and passion for display advertising was clear from the moment we met him, and I am excited about the potential of what he can achieve for our digital portfolio."

Cunning added: "I'm thrilled to be joining Johnston Press. I love working with technology and using it to deliver pioneering creative ideas, so I am very pleased to be a part of the business as it continues to move from print to multi-platform publishing, and to oversee the development of the team during this hugely important period of transition."
