Posted on

Archant has announced the appointment of two senior commercial directors to new roles in its largest areas of operation.

Jonathan Cropley, currently Commercial Director for Herts and Cambs relinquishes that post and takes up the role of commercial director for Norfolk and Suffolk.

Tony Little (pictured above), Commercial Director of Archant’s London and Kent businesses, takes on the additional responsibility for Herts and Cambs.

Both of these roles take effect from February 16 and will ultimately report directly to Archant’s new Chief Commercial Officer, who is yet to be appointed.

Archant’s acting Chief Commercial Officer, Johnny Hustler, said: “Jonathan joined Archant in October 2012 from Local World and will be re-locating to Norwich with his family in the next few months. He has stewarded a fantastic turnaround at Herts and Cambs, and this is a well-deserved step up in responsibility.

“Tony has been Publishing Director of our London and Kent business since February 2011 following a successful career with Autotrader, and has been instrumental in achieving significantly improved results from two highly competitive markets. He will divide his time between our London and Kent offices, Stevenage and Huntingdon.

“We have had a good start to 2015 and it is good that we are able to promote two exceptional colleagues to these important commercial roles.”
