New chief executive for GMG

GMG Radio's parent company Guardian Media Group has a new chief executive.

He's Andrew Miller, chief financial officer of GMG, who had been announced as interim for the position once Carolyn McCall left at the end of June.

The GMG board has now appointed Miller as CEO on a permanent basis, with immediate effect.

Amelia Fawcett, chair of GMG, said: “Andrew is the ideal appointment to this role, following a rigorous recruitment process that produced a very high-quality shortlist of candidates. He has great financial acumen, an intimate understanding of GMG’s portfolio and a full appreciation of our unique purpose and values. He knows how to drive successful digital transformation and has led large-scale financial transactions. Most importantly, he has the ability, desire and vision to lead GMG through the next stage of its development and to ensure a sustainable future for our journalism.”

Andrew Miller said: “It is a great privilege and responsibility to lead Guardian Media Group and to play a key role in supporting the independence of our journalism. While the media sector faces continued change, to which we will need to adapt, our strong portfolio of businesses and investments means we have a solid base from which to move forward.”

As well as Real Radio, Smooth Radio and Rock Radio, GMG owns The Guardian newspaper, the Trader Media Group, Emap Publishing and a Property Services business.
