New sales boss for GMG Scotland

GMG Radio Scotland have appointed Jimmy Docherty as their new Sales Director in place of Gavin Bruce who was recently promoted to Managing Director.

Jimmy takes up the role after 3 and a half years as GMG Radio's Head of Creative for the Real, Smooth and Rock brands in Scotland.

The role of Head of Creative has been filled internally with the promotion of Senior Creative writer Jacob Chan.

Jimmy told "I’ve enjoyed every minute of my time with GMG Radio Scotland and I’m delighted to have this fantastic opportunity to lead what is, in my opinion, the finest commercial team in Scottish media. With the skill set we have, I believe we’re well placed to continue to offer our clients and partners compelling creative solutions to their advertising needs, showing how radio can play an important and integral part in their media mix."

On the appointment of Jacob Chan as his own successor, Jimmy added: "Jacob has been with the business for seven years now, starting out as a Trainee Writer. His ambition, creative flair and commercial nuance has always been evident, so it was enormously gratifying considering the high level of applications for the position, that the stand out candidate was an existing member of our team."

Gavin Bruce, Managing Director for GMG Radio Scotland said: "I’m delighted with the appointments of both Jimmy and Jacob and as Jimmy said, it is testament to the talent we have at GMG Radio Scotland, such crucial roles could be filled internally, against such strong external competition. I'm confident that with Jimmy at the helm, the commercial department will go on to enjoy even better success in the years ahead."
