Managing director quits Galleon CI ahead of office relocation
LONDON - Galleon CI, the new magazine marketing company jointly owned by BBC Worldwide and Dennis Publishing, has lost its managing director Mandy Thwaites following a decision to relocate operations.
The company was created in April this year out of the merger of Galleon, owned by BBC Worldwide and located in Somerset, and Customer Interface, part-owned by Dennis and located in Kent. It supports BBC and Dennis titles as well as titles owned by the Puzzler Group, H Bauer, Highbury House and Haymarket, the publisher of Brand Republic.
After a review, the company has decided to relocate its Somerset-based operations to an office next to its Kent base next year.
Thwaites and head of client services Sean Sheffield have opted to leave the new company after initially staying on in the same roles they had at Galleon.
The managing director position will temporarily be filled by Tom Turcan, Galleon CI's chairman of executive managment.
Sheffield has been replaced by Ranjinder Lall, currently marketing director at Highbury House.
The changes were a natural consequence of the merger, according to BBC Magazines managing director Peter Phippen.
Phippen said: "I am confident that we are making great strides towards building the UK's gold standard subscriptions fulfilment company for the future."
