Future promotes Nial Ferguson to managing director

Brand Republic has reported the promotion of Future’s Nial Ferguson to managing director of Future UK.

Ferguson joined Future from Bauer in March 2008 as group publisher for T3 and was appointed managing director of its technology and film and games divisions in July.

He will take on expanded responsibility for the sport, music and automotive divisions of Future’s UK business. His appointment is said to be the next stage of the reorganisation of the senior management structure, as the company continues its transition to a predominantly digital business.

Earlier this year, Ferguson spoke at FIPP’s Digital Innovators’ Summit about new devices and the implications of these on the future of the magazine media industry.
