Real & Smooth commercial director leaves
Real and Smooth Limited’s Jonathan Gillespie has left the business after three years as Group Commercial Director.
He was poached by the group in 2009 from Google UK where he was Head of You Tube and Display. At Real and Smooth, aka GMG Radio, he was responsible for national and regional revenues, marketing and digital activity for the Real and Smooth Radio brands. His duties have been absorbed by other board directors within the group.
In 2009 Gillespie replaced Stuart Taylor who was promoted to Chief Executive, who himself left the group recently after Global Radio bought the company.
Jonathan Gillespie said: “I’ve really enjoyed working with a fantastic team to develop Real and Smooth into two of Britain’s great commercial radio brands but it’s the right time for me to pursue new opportunities.”
Real and Smooth Limited Chief Executive Mark Lee said: “Jonathan has played a leading role in the development of the company over the last three years and we wish him all the best for the future.”
