APN New Zealand Limited Appoints New Driven Editor

Matt Greenop has been appointed Motoring Editor - APN. He will take responsibility for overseeing editorial content in motoring print and online publications across the APN group, including The New Zealand Herald, and APN Regional Newspapers in New Zealand.

Matt has been online technology and motoring editor at APN Digital for the past five years. He has many years’ experience in motoring journalism, including web, magazines and newspapers in New Zealand and overseas.

Matt who takes up his new role with Driven this week comments "We’ve got some great plans as we move forward and will continue to keep promoting all things that matter to the motoring public, and cement our irrefutable position as the biggest motoring publication in the country. Driven has now ticked over a year old and has been more of a success than we ever expected, thanks to the amazing team that’s been on board since its launch."

Liz Dobson, of the Herald’s Driven publications and an experienced motoring journalist, will be his deputy.

Alastair Sloane, who has been the Herald’s motoring editor since 1997, is moving to a new role as APN’s senior motoring correspondent. He will work as freelance writer for the Driven product he helped create. For a long time Alastair single-handedly carried our motoring content. He has a rich depth of knowledge and exceptional relations with the key figures in Auckland and New Zealand’s car industry.

We’re pleased Alastair’s work will feature in both the midweek and Weekend Herald editions of Driven, which continues to win strong support from readers and the industry.
