Jamieson moves on after 30 years
A LEADING Queensland newspaper executive with close links to The Morning Bulletin and Rockhampton is leaving his role as a chief executive of APN Australian Publishing.
Mark Jamieson will leave his post at the end of the month after a major restructure of management roles in Australia and New Zealand.
APN News and Media chief executive Martin Simons announced this week that Mr Jamieson’s role as chief executive of Australian Publishing was to be made redundant.
During his three decades with the company, Mr Jamieson was responsible for the development of Rural Weekly, Queensland on Show exhibitions and the Recruitment Super-Highway, which has become Search4Jobs.
Mr Simons paid tribute to Mr Jamieson’s contribution to the company.
“Mark has been with APN for almost 30 years and has held a number of senior roles.
“During his time with APN, Mark has overseen strong growth in the markets and products he has had accountability for and, as chief executive of Australian Publishing since 2006, headed a profitable and vibrant media organisation.
“An important aspect of this has been Mark’s initiative to launch and develop the annual ‘Adopt a Family for Christmas’ appeal, now in its 16th year and having raised more than $7million.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mark for his contribution to Australian Publishing and to the APN News and Media Group and wish him every success in his future endeavours.”
Mr Jamieson was the general manager of The Morning Bulletin for almost three years, starting in 1998 before moving onto other managerial roles within APN in Queensland.
Mr Simons, also a former general manager of The Morning Bulletin, said he would assume trans-Tasman chief executive responsibility.
Current senior executives Stephen Tait and Peter Montgomery will be promoted to wider roles within Australian Publishing.
