The board of directors wants to strengthen the management structures of the various titles and has therefore created the position of editorial director, the newspaper announced on Wednesday. Sandra Jean is to further develop the Nouvelliste brand and lead publishing projects for the printed and digital editions.
She will also manage the magazines of the Hersant Group (ESH Médias). The media house Tamedia, which owns the newspaper Le Matin, thanked Sandra Jean for her work. The name of a successor at Le Matin will be announced at a later date.
The new editor-in-chief of Le Nouvelliste is Vincent Fragnière. The previous editor-in-chief, Jean-François Fournier, and the board of directors of Le Nouvelliste decided in October in a joint agreement to terminate the employment relationship. Since then, Jean-Yves Gabbud and Pascal Fauchère have been managing the editorial team ad interim. (SDA)
