The Board of Trinity Mirror announced that David Grigson will take up his appointment as Chairman on May 29 [2012], Sir Ian Gibson resigning as a director with effect from May 28. This was to facilitate a smooth transition ahead of the Company’s interim results announcement due this August.

David Grigson said: ‘The Board thanks Sir Ian for his leadership over the last six years and I look forward to working more closely with the team.’

Mr Grigson, who is leading the process to identify a new Chief Executive following Sly Bailey’s resignation, was formerly Chief Financial Officer of Reuters Group plc and prior to that of EMAP plc.
