Trader Media Group UK sales director, franchise, Sharon Randall (pictured) will take over the role of group director, digital marketing services on an interim basis following the announcement that Craig Stevens has left the company.
Stevens will now “pursue other commercial interests”.
Until a more permanent replacement is appointed, Randall will now sit on the TMG executive board on an interim basis, and will manage relationships with franchise, group and manufacturer customers.
Stevens joined TMG in 1996 as a general manager for the National Magazine division and has worked his way up through the organisation over the last 17 years.
Zillah Bing Maddick, interim CEO of Trader Media Group, said: “Craig’s contribution to the success of Trader Media Group over the last three decades has been immeasurable.
“His leadership has driven the development of the group, despite really tough market conditions. He has leaves a strong legacy from which we will build as we look forward to the challenges of the next few years.”
Stevens helped Auto Trader with its transition from print to a predominantly digital business, as well as developing the group’s digital business Razsor.
