Fairfax Media NZ appoints Jeremy Rees

Jeremy Rees has been appointed to the newly-established National Community Titles editor role at Fairfax Media New Zealand.

His appointment is the first of several new senior editorial positions aimed at enhancing local and national journalism across Fairfax Media’s newsrooms nationally.

Sinead Boucher, Fairfax Media’s Executive Editor, says Jeremy will build and develop its communities approach - focusing on local and hyperlocal strategy.

“The National Community Titles position is a key editorial role, focussed on harnessing the power of our national community newspaper network, and developing our strategy around communities - in print as well as in digital.

“It carries a strong experimental and innovation brief as we seek to grow this very important and strong part of our business.”

Jeremy has a wealth of high level experience across digital and print. During his time at the NZ Herald, he has held several key roles including editor and then publisher of the nzherald.co.nz, editor of the Weekend Herald and Head of News.

He has led his team to several Canon awards, including best website and digital innovation, and under his editorship, the Weekend Herald was awarded best weekly newspaper.

Jeremy is currently Associate Editor and Head of Digital Content for the New Zealand Herald.

Last month, Fairfax Media New Zealand announced the introduction of a world-class approach to digital storytelling with a renewed focus on local journalism. Newsrooms will work with new digital-centric editorial and production practices to deliver quality content to audiences, when and how they want it.
