Making a mark

The exit of oaf-ish Kelvin MacKenzie from The Sun has been deftly choreographed.

“Further to our statement on 15 April that Kelvin MacKenzie’s services as a columnist for the Sun were suspended, we can confirm that Mr MacKenzie’s column will not return to the Sun and his contract with News Group Newspapers has been terminated by mutual consent.”

“News UK is no longer a shareholder in A Spokesman Said Ltd (price comparison site set up with Kelvin). The shares have been transferred to Kelvin MacKenzie.”

Who's running HR at News UK ?  Mark Beesley was appointed Group HR Director last December, having joined the company back in 2007, from the BBC, where he worked in New, Documentary & Factual programmes and World Service.
