Media Isle of Man is the largest news and marketing entity on the island. Our portfolio includes the Isle of Man Examiner, Manx Independent, Isle of Man Courier, Isle of Man Today, Gef, Kipper Creative, the Awards for Excellence and Gef’s 30 Under 30 awards.
A Media Isle of Man post on LinkedIn said: A warm welcome to His Excellency Sir John Lorimer KCB DSO MBE and Lady Lorimer, who came to visit the team here at Media Isle of Man.
After nearly 15 incredible years, Richard Butt has passed the baton on to the new editor, Dion Jones.
It was an excellent opportunity for His Excellency to congratulate Richard for his achievements with the publishing house, where he will continue working as Contributing Editor.
We also showcased our exciting campaigns such as Gef 30 Under 30 and the Awards for Excellence, as well as our continued growth across print and digital.
