NewsBrands Ireland has appointed Anne Marie Lenihan as its new CEO following a strategic review of the organization. She replaces Dara McMahon who has joined Aer Lingus as marketing manager.
Ms Lenihan brings a wealth of experience to the role. She has worked with the newspaper industry for over 20 years. Prior to this appointment, she was communications and public affairs manager with NewsBrands Ireland, a position that she also held when the organisation was National Newspapers of Ireland. In this capacity she was responsible for directing all of the industry body’s key initiatives and events, and managing all public policy.
According to NewsBrands Ireland chairman, Vincent Crowley, “we are delighted to announce the appointment of Ann Marie Lenihan as CEO of NewsBrands Ireland. She brings a depth of experience to the role and a palpable enthusiasm for promoting the newspaper industry. She understands the unique needs of newspaper publishers and is highly respected by people working in NewsBrands Ireland’s client companies and in Irish media generally.”
