Anderson-Dixon has over three decades of experience in regional media, joining Northcliffe in 1983 and holding a number of senior advertising and regional MD roles before moving to Trinity in 2011.

He initially oversaw the publisher’s Midlands territory but after Simon Fox replaced Sly Bailey and introduced his One Trinity Mirror approach, Liverpool-based Anderson-Dixon was put in charge of one of three new publishing regions, covering Manchester, Liverpool, Cheshire, Huddersfield and North Wales.
