General Manager Of Southland Times

28 July 2004

Gareth Codd Appointed General Manager Of Southland Times

Gareth Codd has been appointed General Manager of The Southland Times, Fairfax NZ Chief Executive Officer Brian Evans announced today.

He succeeds former general manager Barry Appleby, who was recently appointed deputy general manager of the Fairfax southern region. Barry will be relocating to Christchurch, where he will continue to have overall responsibility for the company’s Southland and Timaru divisions along with the Christchurch community newspaper titles. Gareth, 33, has 15 years’ experience in newspapers. His newspaper career started in Wales in the circulation department of the Western Mail and Echo, the country’s national newspaper. He went to become circulation, promotions and marketing manager of the Cambrian News and was general manager of a group of three free weekly newspapers in South Wales.

After moving to New Zealand in 2001, Gareth was appointed regional manager of The Southland Times’ Queenstown office, which included managing The Mirror, the company’s free weekly publication in Central Otago.

In March this year Gareth was appointed advertising manager of The Southland Times and was later appointed to the role of deputy general manager.

Brian Evans said Gareth had an excellent background.

`Gareth’s strong commercial pedigree in local newspapers and his newspaper experience in Britain made him an outstanding prospect for the leadership of the Southland Times.’’

Gareth Codd said: “Since moving to Invercargill I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting local business people and have received a friendly and warm welcome.

“I am excited about this new appointment and the challenge of having day-to-day management responsibility of The Southland Times.”

The Southland Times is a division of Fairfax New Zealand Limited. The division includes the daily newspaper, four community newspapers – The Mirror, Clutha Leader, Taieri Herald, Newslink – and a fortnightly farming publication, the Otago Southland Farmer.
