Bauer Media gets new digital sales head

Bauer Media has appointed James Eppinger as its new agency digital head.

Eppinger will manage the publisher's online sales team and recruit three account managers to the digital sales team.

Eppinger was previously the deputy sales director and acting head of the UK operations with online ad sales firm Gorilla Nation Media.

Bauer Media, which publishes women's fashion weekly Grazia, gossip magazine Closer and men's magazine FHM, has recently lost several key digital executives including group digital MD Tony Kypreos and digital marketing director Carl Lyons.

Bauer Media said it will soon appoint a new senior creative director as well.
