Journalist returns to The Scotsman in senior commercial role

Rosemary GallagherA journalist has returned to her old newspaper in a senior role combining editorial and commercial duties.

National World has appointed Rosemary Gallagher as its head of commercial content in Scotland, where she will be focused particularly on The Scotsman.

Before moving into public relations, Rosemary was the Edinburgh-based daily’s personal finance editor, and was business news editor for Scotland on Sunday, after holding reporting and editing positions with trade publications in London.

In her new role, she will be working with National World’s editorial and commercial teams across Scotland to develop content – including printed reports, podcasts and social campaigns – to “help grow revenue streams, expand audiences and raise the profile of some of the group’s iconic titles”.

Rosemary, pictured, said: “I’m excited to join National World to help raise the profile of The Scotsman, and other Scottish titles, by working with colleagues to create a wealth of content – for new and existing readers – and develop commercial opportunities.

“And it’s good to be back with The Scotsman.”

Rosemary had served as a director with PR consultancies, managing clients in such sectors as food and drink and professional services, and was also a freelance journalist for a range of titles.

Previously, she was head of communications with industry trade body the Scotch Whisky Association and worked in media relations for the Scottish Parliament.

Jim Killough, commercial director for Scotland, said: “I am excited to have such an experienced and talented editor join the team at a time where The Scotsman looks to further develop its partnerships and relationships with businesses across Scotland and beyond.

“The Scotsman has a history, heritage and audience like no other media brand in Scotland.

“Having Rosemary join the team allows us to explore new and innovative ways in which we can connect our audience with new and existing partners from across all spheres of Scottish business.”
