Weeks: left after restructure

David Weeks, executive director at The Week, has left the company after more than 10 years in the role.

According to a post on LinkedIn, Weeks left The Week last week after a restructure and is "looking for a fresh challenge to apply my commercial experience and creativity".

A familiar and popular face on the media scene, Weeks came second in the 2016 Media360’s debate on which medium would grow the most; he put the case for the magazine sector.

It is not known if he has been replaced or how many other members of staff left as part of the restructure.

Julian Lloyd-Evans, chief revenue officer at Dennis Publishing, said: "Following a recent strategic review of the senior commercial team on current affairs, the role of executive director of The Week current affairs has been made redundant and David Weeks left the business at the end of August.

David made a significant contribution to The Week and Dennis over the last 10 years. Using his experience and creativity he helped to transform The Week into the market leading brand it is today. We wish him well with the next chapter in his career."

Before joining Dennis Publishing’s The Week, Weeks was UK and northern Europe, Middle East and Africa director at The Economist.
