New MD for GMG Radio Scotland
Gavin Bruce is to take over permenantly as Managing Director of GMG Radio in Scotland, looking after the Real, Rock and Smooth brands.
He's been Acting MD for the last 10 months and his appointment follows the announcement last week that previous job holder Billy Anderson was to become the MD of the Real and Rock brands across the UK.
Gavin's been with GMG Radio in Glasgow since 2002 – first as a Sales Executive, then S&P Manager, Sales Manager and Sales Director.
Gavin told RadioToday.co.uk: "This is a very proud moment in my career. Being given this fantastic opportunity by GMG Radio, to lead such a brilliant group of people, is a challenge that I am very excited about. Our focus on creating great radio for our listeners across all three brands and delivering results for our advertisers remains unchanged."
Managing Director of Real and Rock Radio, Billy Anderson said, "As acting Managing Director for the last 10 months, Gavin’s stewardship and forward thinking has enhanced the GMG Radio Scotland proposition both on-air and in the marketplace.
"Gavin cares passionately about the business and its people and it is always satisfying to see growth from within GMG Radio. Real Radio Scotland has been an enormous success as it approaches its 9th birthday and with Smooth Radio hitting a record high in audience and exciting times ahead for Rock Radio, I am certain that Gavin’s creative flare will encourage growth at all levels in the years ahead."
