The Express is to launch two websites and is on the hunt for an ad

manager and two sales executives to complete an ad sales team of

five.



Virgin Net’s editor, Robert Leedham, was recruited last week as managing

editor of the online operation. David Lilley has also joined as head of

business development for new media from Future’s contract publishing

operation.



Both Leedham and Lilley will report to Anne Mollen who was recently

promoted to director of new media. She was formerly head of business

development across Express Newspapers.



Mollen is finding it difficult to find people with online

experience.



’It is more important that they are good sales people who are

enthusiastic about the web and use it in their personal life,’ she

said.



One of the new sites will be a women’s lifestyle site to be run by

Christina Hopkinson, the launch editor of charlottestreet.com, who has

been poached from Associated New Media.



The content of the other new site has not been revealed although ’it

will focus on one of The Express’s key editorial strengths.’ The Express

has three websites - MegaStar, SportLive and express.co.uk.
