Cruikshank (pictured) said: “Heading up the broader Life Media division feels like a natural evolution for me. Having achieved real growth with Essential Baby, Essential Kids, The Vine and Daily Life, I’m looking forward to taking on broader verticals including Food and Travel and bringing the same focus to them.”

Allen Williams, managing director of Australian Publishing Media, added: “I’m delighted that Melina will be leading Life Media. She will bring fresh energy and rigour to our expansive portfolio of life-related digital and print assets, backed by a strong digital experience and commercial rationale.”
