Lord Rothermere commented, "Martin will continue to provide strong leadership for the Group, as he has done so successfully in the last seven years as chief executive. We have set strategic priorities for 2016 which will position the Group to address the next phase of its development."

Morgan added: "Since joining the Group in 1989, I have seen significant change, particularly with the growth of our B2B operations, the development into a truly global company and the successful transition from print to digital. I am looking forward to my final year as chief executive – executing on the clear priorities set for 2016 and shaping the Group for growth for the next decade."
