Trinity Mirror has announced it will cut one of its most senior digital publishing executives as part of a restructure of its national and regional digital teams.

The new structure, which the publisher says is aimed at "accelerating digital revenue growth", will see a new digital business unit set up within Trinity's nationals division.

The role of group director of digital publishing, currently held by David Black, will be made redundant. The group has confirmed that it has today entered into consultation with Black.

Matt Kelly, Trinity Mirror's digital content director, who was reported in September to be leaving Trinity Mirror in three months for a role with online video specialist Perform, has been promoted to publisher of the digital unit.

The new business unit will be headed by an as yet unappointed managing director, who will report to Mark Hollinshead, managing director of the nationals division, says a release from the group.

"The unit will ensure the business has a total focus on developing new and existing digital products and services," says the release from Trinity Mirror.

Dave Raywood, who is currently marketing director at MEN Media, has been appointed as digital commercial director of the regionals division as part of the restructure.
