New editorial director for weddings division

Posted on

Joanne Goodwin has been appointed as Editorial Director for Archant Lifestyle’s Weddings Division.

Joanne joined Archant Life in June 2006 and was previously editor of Herefordshire and Wye Valley Life, Shropshire Life, Warwickshire Life and Worcestershire Life and brings with her a wealth of senior editorial experience.

Mike Sherrard, Managing Director of Exhibitions & Weddings, said: “The weddings business is growing at a fast pace and its content and editorial provision is core to this growth as we expand into more channels. With a wide range of channels we can distribute the content we create more effectively for ourselves, our customers and our advertisers.

“This year we will publish 13 regional Bride magazines, put on 10 events and multiple fayres. We have already relaunched our websites, started communication through newsletters and begun developing apps for this sector.

“This range of channels requires leadership to ensure we generate the right content for the right medium. This will help us to enable Archant's mission to be realised - bringing together motivated buyers and sellers in the communities we serve through compelling content. Joanne will help us deliver this.”
