Botanics Marketing Move for Bushell

The marketing and promotions manager at Johnston Press Scotland and its Scotsman Publications group is leaving for a new job.

Paula Bushell is leaving today to become head of marketing and communication at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh.

She has been with The Scotsman Publications Ltd for ten years, initially as group promotions manager. Six years ago, she was made marketing and promotions manager and, three years ago, the post became divisional, for Johnston Press.

Her job has included newspaper giveaways, such as books and maps, and among the highlights have been promoting the switch of The Scotsman, from broadsheet size to compact, eight years ago, and the recent launch of an iPad app for the paper.

She told allmediascotland: “There is no doubt that I will miss Scotsman Publications and the fast pace of newspapers, but equally it's fantastic to have a brand new challenge ahead. It has been a privilege to work here.”
