Newsquest group editor expands role

Newsquest has appointed Tim Jones to head up North London’s Times and Independent Series, the Watford Observer and the St Albans and Harpenden Review.

Jones, already group editor of the East London and West Essex series which includes the Waltham Forest Guardian, now oversees editorial on all Newsquest’s weekly titles in North London, South Buckinghamshire and South Hertfordshire.

The appointment follows the departures of two group editors, Martin Buhagiar and Peter Wilson-Leary, who are both leaving Newsquest as part of a restructure.

Buhagiar had been group editor of the Times and Independent titles since April 2011.

Wilson-Leary departs after 31 years with Newsquest.
