ACP’s Gerry Reynolds given greater control


ACP Magazine’s publishing director Gerry Reynolds has had his role expanded to include ACP’s local consumer magazines as well as custom publishing.

Reynolds will continue to report to Stanton, who is CEO for operations in Australia, Asia, New Zealand and Hong Kong.

The move brings a stronger editorial leadership to the company after the December departure of Phil Scott, a journalist by background, who was replaced by ACP’s former CFO Stanton.

Stanton said: “Gerry is one of ACP’s most accomplished and experienced media executives and has earned this promotion. In addition, structuring our publishing team into portfolios under Gerry’s direction will both support our existing businesses and allow ACP to tap into the new growth areas we’ve identified.”

Publishers Peter Holder and Robyn Foyster will report to Reynolds with Holder, publisher of NW, Take 5, OK!, Men’s Style, Empire and Rolling Stone, has had Cleo, Shop Til You Drop and Dolly added to his portfolio.

Foyster, publisher of Woman’s Day, Cosmopolitan, madison, Harper’s Bazaar and Grazia will retain her current portfolio.

Reynolds will continue as publisher of The Australian Women’s Weekly, Australian Gourmet Traveller, House & Garden, Real Living and Belle with editors reporting directly to Reynolds.

A new business unit has also been created which includes custom publishing and book businesses with Sally Wright, formerly general manager ACP Custom Media, becoming publisher. Wright will also report directly to Reynolds.

Anna Quinn, group commercial manager, will hold publishing duties for Good Health and Women’s Fitness, due to launch soon.

Stanton also announced a business unit for ACP specialist titles with a team reporting directly to him. Reynolds will steer editorial direction. The unit includes Brendon Hill as publisher of technology, parenting, motoring, sport and men’s brands as well as Gourmet Traveller Wine and Money magazines.

Ewen Page and Jo Runciman will support Hill, with Sharon Christal returning to the UK and handing over her portfolio to Mr Hill and Ms Runciman.
