Former News Corp Australia group marketing director Damian Eales has been appointed managing director of metro and regional publications at the company.
Mr Eales will continue to serve as the head of marketing and network advertising sales in which he had been acting since the resignation of Fiorella Di Santo from News Corp Australia in March. He takes over the new role from News Corp veteran Jerry Harris who stepped down two weeks ago after 34 years at the company.
National production and logistics director Geoff Booth has been promoted to an executive position, and will now additionally have full responsibility for the production and physical distribution of News Corp Australia’s newspapers.
News Corp Australia chief executive Julian Clarke has said he also will appoint a managing director to oversee the company’s community newspapers.
Mr Eales will report to Mr Clarke and Mr Booth will report to Susan Panuccio, the publisher’s chief financial officer.
