The protracted search for a new chief executive at Torstar Corp. is complete. The company said Wednesday morning that it will make an announcement on a new boss “very soon” and current CEO David Holland will retire at the end of this week.
Rumours in the market have suggested that two top external candidates are people more notable for their abilities to work with family owners than for track records of turning around fading newspaper publishers. There is also an internal Torstar candidate well versed in digital media. It’s entirely possible that none of these three executives will be named CEO, and a dark horse candidate will emerge with the job.Report Typo/Error
