TUESDAY, MAY 15: Bermuda.com general manager Glenn Jones has been reassigned to a newly created position at the website’s parent company, MediaHouse announced today.

Glenn Jones is now business development and marketing manager for three Bermuda-based MediaHouse subsidiaries — Bermuda Sun, Island Press and bermuda.com.

Randy French, MediaHouse chairman and CEO, said: “Glenn is an important part of our company-wide effort to be nimble and agile in the face of a significantly changed economic landscape in Bermuda.

“We expect the same kind of business growth and marketing strategies Glenn brought to bermuda.com, he will now bring to all of our Bermuda-based media companies.”

Mr Jones took over as general manager of bermuda.com in January 2010, and since then, has managed the redesign of bermuda.com as well as the launch of bermuda.com Deals, bermuda.com Shop, bermudaCupMatch.com and bermuda.com 12 Days of Christmas. Before running bermuda.com, Mr. Jones was press secretary to Bermuda’s Premier from 2007 to 2009 and a journalist in the United States and Bermuda from 1999 to 2007. Mr Jones won an EMMY Award for television journalism.

He said: “MediaHouse is a great Bermuda media institution with a Bermuda-born CEO and a collection of skilled Bermudian company members.

“I’m honoured to be asked to take on a greater leadership role here and help usher in a new spirit of innovation.”

Mr. Jones officially began his new role as MediaHouse business development and marketing manager earlier this month immediately following a ten-week assignment working in Kingston for Jamaica Yellow Pages, another company in the MediaHouse family.

The day-to-day operation of bermuda.com now rests with Jorgen Clausen, who ran bermuda.com from 2004 to 2008.

He is familiar to many bermuda.com advertisers.
