Editor of award-winning website moving on

THE editor of The Scotsman newspaper’s award-winning website, scotsman.com, is leaving.

Stewart Kirkpatrick, who took the reins at the website seven years ago and has overseen a ten-fold increase in readership, is understood to have decided to pursue a career in consultancy after more than ten years with Scotsman Publications.

www.scotsman.com has scooped numerous awards, including the Newspaper Society’s
prize for best daily newspaper site three times.
