Guardian Media Group Appoints CFO Andrew Miller as CEO
Guardian Media Group (GMG) has appointed Andrew Miller as chief executive officer (CEO). He succeeds Carolyn McCall, who left the group at the end of June to become CEO of easyJet. Miller was previously chief financial officer (CFO) of GMG.
In April GMG announced that, should the process to recruit a new CEO be ongoing when McCall left GMG at the end of June, Miller would become interim CEO. This announcement confirms his appointment as CEO on a permanent basis.
Before he became CFO of GMG in August 2009, Miller was CFO of Trader Media Group (TMG) for more than six years. During that time he played a leading role both in Auto Trader’s highly successful transition from print to digital publishing (approximately 90% of TMG’s £100m-plus profit is now generated through digital channels), and in the sale of 49.9% of TMG to Apax Partners for circa £700m. He was also interim CEO for a period. He has previously worked at Pepsico’s FritoLay division, Bass and Procter & Gamble. He is a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland, having gained his accountancy qualification with Price Waterhouse.
Miller is a graduate in law from Edinburgh University.
