Postmedia hires new EVP and CCO

Andrew MacLeod is joining the company from his most recent role at BlackBerry.

Postmedia has announced the addition of Andrew MacLeod to the company as EVP and chief commercial officer. MacLeod comes to Postmedia from his most recent role at BlackBerry.

Starting at the company on July 7, MacLeod will report directly to Wayne Parrish, who says he is a valuable asset to the team in part because of his knowledge of the mobile space.

“He brings a deep understanding of consumer behaviour on our fastest growing platform – mobile – and unique insights into potential program development opportunities,” said Parrish in a release on MacLeod joining the team.

MacLeod will lead a team of 600 Postmedia sales staff at the company, which recently rolled out the first pub in its new four-platform model with the relaunch of the Ottawa Citizen and addition of new mobile apps around the title.
