Prior to joining the YP, Ginns was editor of new media start-up Kent on Sunday and, before that, was a news reporter at The Mail on Sunday, covering EMEA from London.

He said: “It has been an honour and a privilege to serve as business editor of The Yorkshire Post over the last eight years. I am sad to be leaving friends and colleagues at the YP, Yorkshire Evening Post and Johnston Press and wish them well for the future.

“I joined The Yorkshire Post in 2008 and have been closely involved in business development at the title, creating new revenue streams through initiatives like the Excellence in Business Awards, the Yorkshire Vision magazine and the Business Club, as well as expanding our coverage in print and online.”

Ginns started his journalism career at the London Newspaper Group after graduating from the University of Manchester.
