Trinity Mirror, which publishes the Local Mole regional business websites, looks set to up the ante with a new management structure.

Trinity Mirror Regionals said it was strengthening its digital-management team with the creation of two new senior roles: digital commercial director and Local Mole general manager.

When hired, both executives will report directly to David Black, the group director of digital publishing. All of which apparently makes the current role of regionals digital director redundant, which means the current incumbent in that role, Chris Bunyan, is negotiating his future with the company.
