Rushton quits Sunday Sun for Media House

Glasgow-based consultancy Media House is to launch a London office.

Glasgow-based consultancy Media House is to launch a London

office.



It will be headed by Chris Rushton, who resigned from his post as editor

of Newcastle’s Sunday Sun last week following a lengthy investigation

into his ’aggressive’ management style.



Staff complaints to assistant editor Mike McGiffen at the newspaper,

where Rushton spent seven years, resulted in the inquiry by the

personnel department. Industry sources said Rushton resigned from the

newspaper last week because he was not prepared to compromise his

approach and the clash of cultures was insurmountable.



Rushton previously worked with Jack Irvine, chief executive of Media

House, at the Glasgow Daily Record, and will join the agency on 15

December.



’Chris’s aggressive, hands on, direct style suits the ethos of Media

House,’ said Irvine.



Irvine said he expected the London office to be fully operational by

February.



Media House’s clients in the London area include caravan holiday company

Bourne Leisure and nursing home operator Tamaris.
