Before moving into product management, Julian was Newsquest’s digital content development manager, spending almost two years spearheading the transformation of the group from a traditional print publisher into a multimedia news provider. That was preceded by a ten-year stint in local journalism, including roles as a reporter at the Barnsley Chronicle and crime reporter, deputy news editor and web editor at The Bolton News.
