White’s previous role, head of newspapers, will be replaced by Oliver Wheatley.
White and Wheatley will continue to report into group sales director, Simon Poole.
Poole said: “As we continue to invest in our multi-platform proposition for advertisers, James’ strong trading performance and collaborative approach makes him the perfect person to take the business forward. Additionally, Oliver has an impressive track record in delivering strong results for the business. I look forward to working even more closely with both James and Oliver to build on the momentum of the success they’ve already achieved.”
