Ian Murray, Executive Director of the Society of Editors said: “”This year’s Society of Editors Conference is shaping up to once again be the most important date in the media calendar with some of the biggest names in the industry giving their thoughts on what the future holds.”

Earlier this year Trinity Mirror acquired Northern & Shell’s papers and magazines (Daily & Sunday Express, Daily Star & Daily Star Sunday and OK, New & Star magazines) and then re-branded the group as Reach Plc. As Group Editor-in-Chief, Lloyd has overall editorial responsibility for all of the Reach titles.

Lloyd joined Trinity Mirror in 1994 as a sub-editor on the Daily Mirror. He has held several positions including, Deputy Chief Sub-Editor, Assistant Night Editor, Night Editor and Assistant Editor.

He became Editor of the Sunday People in 2008, and then editor of the Daily Mirror and Sunday Mirror in 2012, before being appointed to editor-in-chief later that year. He was promoted to the role of Group Editor-in-Chief with editorial responsibility for Trinity Mirror’s national and regional newsbrands in 2014.
