Industry trade magazine Music Week has announced a new editor in the form of veteran music journalist Mark Sutherland, who became Contributing Editor for the title at the start of the year.

Sutherland – perhaps best known for his stints at classic music magazines like Smash Hits, Melody Maker and NME – was previously Global Editor for US industry mag Billboard. He takes over the top job at the UK publication from Tom Pakinkis, who became editor there back in January following the departure of his predecessor Tim Ingham, who subsequently founded the Music Business Worldwide site.

On his new gig, Sutherland said: “I’m thrilled to become editor of Music Week at such an exciting time for the publication and for the music business in general. Music Week is in brilliant shape and bursting with future potential. I’m looking forward to joining the team that provides the best coverage of the industry and helping to take things to the next level”.
