Claire Beale to leave Campaign for Marketing as Brand Republic titles undergo editor-level staffing changes
Brand Republic has announced that there will be editor-level staffing changes for its titles Campaign, Marketing and PRWeek as it shifts focus onto 'its core brands and digital publishing'.
The role of editor across the three magazines has been replaced with the newly created position of brand editor, which looks to cover all channels of publication. Danny Rogers, the editor of PRWeek, has been appointed to the role of brand editor for Campaign and Media Week, while also continuing as group editor-in-chief.
Claire Beale, the editor of Campaign, has become brand editor of Marketing, responsible for all editorial content aimed at brand owners and client-side marketers.
Beale said of the move: ‘I've been given a great opportunity to drive Marketing's development as a dynamic and creative multi-media brand for brand leaders, their CEOs and anyone who is responsible for building brands to build businesses.’
Campaign (website, print and app) and Media Week (website) will be produced by a single editorial team. This includes a newly-appointed head of media – Arif Durrani (formerly group news editor) and a news editor - Maisie McCabe (formerly senior reporter).
Noelle McElhatton, editor of marketing, has also announced her decision to leave Haymarket Media Group after 12 years at the company. She commented: ‘It’s been an immense privilege to lead Marketing and its talented, creative and hardworking team as we pulled off a redesign of the brand, achieved record levels of traffic to our website and continued to build on one of the highest Twitter followings in B2B publishing.'
'We've successfully repositioned Marketing so that it is best able to report on and reflect the digital explosion that is sweeping through the marketing industry.'
