DMGT CEO Martin Morgan to step down after 27 years

Daily Mail and General Trust Group has announced that chief executive Martin Morgan will step down after 27 years at the helm.

Mr Morgan will leave the company, which controls the Daily Mail newspaper, in June.

He will be replaced by Paul Zwillenberg, currently at Boston Consulting Group, who has worked closely with DMGT for 20 years.

Executive chair Lord Rothermere said: "DMGT owes Martin a debt of gratitude for his 27 years' service and his leadership of the group's transformation.

"Paul's strategic insight and close involvement across our portfolio over the last 20 years means that he is ideal for the role of CEO at this exciting time for our diversified businesses."

Mr Morgan will stay on in an advisory role until January 2017.
