David Goodchild, currently the CEO of H Bauer Publishing, has decided to pursue opportunities outside of the group and will be leaving us on the 13th May.

Says Andreas Schoo, Executive Board Member, Bauer Media Group, “To increase our growth, operational performance and competitiveness we have decided to consolidate our UK and Nordic operations, under the leadership of Paul.   This will strengthen our business for the future and enable us to seize new opportunities in these key territories.

Paul Keenan said: “Bauer Media is exceptionally well positioned with a unique set of influential brands living across multiple channels and devices. This multi-media offer makes us a compelling marketing partner for our clients and an exciting and different content creator.  I am delighted to have the opportunity to take the business further forward, and to meet the many exciting opportunities that lie ahead”. 

Andreas adds: “I would also like to take this opportunity to thank David.  He leaves our business in great shape and we wish him all the very best for the future”.
