Nicola Furbisher has left her role as editor of the Yorkshire Evening Post and managing editor of the Yorkshire Post to join the company which former Sheffield Star Editor, John Furbisher, founded 15 months ago.

Nicola Furbisher announced her decision to leave the role last year. During her three years at Yorkshire Post Newspapers she led on campaigns such as Loneliness: The Hidden Epidemic (The Yorkshire Post) and #SpeakYourMind (Yorkshire Evening Post), a campaign to end the stigma surrounding mental health issues.

Nicola Furbisher was previously group editor of the Derbyshire Times and associated titles.

She said: “The company has grown even faster than we anticipated and to fulfil client demand and realise the firm’s potential, the time was right to step up.

“I’m leaving behind a great team at Yorkshire Post Newspapers but look forward to new projects and building new relationships. It’s an exciting time in politics and media relations so I expect no less pace or pressure.”

Furbisher Media provides PR services, public affairs consultancy, media training, coaching, mentoring and crisis communications. John Furbisher launched the company following five years in Brussels as head of communications for Britain’s Conservative MEPs.
