Emap's magazine division is reported to be axing 300 staff in a reorganisation that will reduce the workforce from 750  back to 450. Redundancies and departures include long-term motorcycle magazine managers Charlie Davis, Shawn Collin and Mark Perkins.
The reorganisation will see eight divisional Managing Directors reporting back to Group Managing Director Ian Templeton, with the Bike Division falling under new MD, Will Hattam.
It is reported that all sales, marketing and design department staff have been invited to re-apply for their jobs.
Recent reports in the financial media have focused on Emap's problems and this reorganisation is clearly designed to be seen as a positive step towards answering those critsicms.
