She was appointed as commercial director of Local World in November 2013 and continued to hold the same role for Trinity Mirror, following the takeover in 2015.

"Both Blanche and Nick join the business with a depth of experience which we look forward to them applying to Bluestone in order to support our ongoing business development."
 
The new directors join an existing board comprising chief executive William McNamara, commercial and operations director Pamela McNamara, finance director Neil Evans and director of HR Debbie Rainbow.
